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 amazon.com? 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...
