Bought three books today and patrones 324

Claire Shaeffer's Tailoring techniques book that comes with a unoperable cd, blah, not the book but the cd.

Natsuno Hiraiwa's shapeshape, I can't get enough of those Japanese sewing books, there's something Scandinavian and pure about them, the styles are simple, clean maybe even crisp.

Now this is so sweet, Vanessa Mooncie's, And Sew to Bed, this is chock full of nice stuff like how to make a powder puff, sleeping mask, cover for your bedside table's lamp the obligatory sleepwear etc and of course everything is so vintage inspired it almost makes you dream....

The Patrones issue 324, has some pretty nice stuff, lot's of jackets (5) and overalls (10) dresses (4) shorts (3) skirts (1) pants (5) tops/ blouses (7) in smaller sizes. Jackets (2), pants (2) and a blouse in plus sizes.

I'll try and get some pix up this week.

Have a great week:)

Can't wait to see pictures of Shape Shape! The Japanese aesthetic is so different than the typical Western one, where the emphasis is on creating the "ideal" body shape. I find the designs fascinating.
