Japanese Dress Books


Beautiful Japanese dress books filled with tunics and dress patterns, found via here. Even if I couldn't figure out the Japanese instructions in these I'd just want them for my coffee table. 

And while we're talking about Japan, Kelli Murray has a really great post (which you can read here) about some of the different and creative ways you can do your bit to donate. Like Kelli says, together we can make a difference!

  19. I bought one of these books a year ago...just like you I thought they were too nice not to have them at home! But, even if the instructions are in japanese, you can easily make something out of this book! Maybe you should give it a try...:)

  20. Ooh! This is precious!
    I'm going to Japan in two weeks and I'm afraid, as marie said, that I might have to ship a box of treasures back home...
