Unauthorized Shopping Part II

Books are educational; so you can buy as many as you want.  
~ Sophie Kinsella

You know how I had to buy something else, in order to get the printer cable that I needed on  Well, it wasn't enough to just buy something else - my other purchases had to total $25, and one Japanese pattern book wasn't expensive enough, so I had to get two!  

I know, I know...  It's a nightmare...  ;)

For my second Japanese pattern book, I picked out Simple Modern Sewing by Shufu To Seikatsu Sha.  

I'm afraid I'm less happy with this purchase...  

I think that "simple" must be a synonym for shapeless.  :(

This style may work for some folks, but not for my body...  I never really think that it's a waste to have more patterns in the house, but I don't think I'll be making any of these any time soon...   


  1. That's why I haven't gone for any of those Japanese books. I can appreciate the design interest, but I just know those clothes wouldn't look right on me at all! But hopefully you'll find a good use for it. :)

    1. Hey Becky! You are smart to have figured that out BEFORE buying any of those books! I had to learn the hard way... ;)
      Oh well, at least the girls' book has some cute patterns! :)
