Organising my Japanese Dress Patterns...
In my ever constant search for organising my 'stuff', I decided to go through my collection of Japanese dress pattern books. I've been collecting these beauties for a couple of years and I love how simple the lines are how loose fitting and innovative the patterns are.
I've popped them all together in an easy to grab place in the sewing room now, ready for some warm weather sewing inspiration!
I adore the use of linen in these loose fitting tunics. Raw edges, beautiful trims. Simple and stylish for Summer!
Anyone who knows me, knows how addicted to stripes I am. It's a staple in my wardrobe and I can't have too many. A good striped tee with simple pants is a go-to for a casual weekend.
I am also a sucker for denim and chambray on the weekend! This loose fitting dropped waist dress can be popped over leggings with clogs for the weekend or with bare legs and vans sneakers in the warm weather. I love the ease of it.
I think that there will be some sewing in the near future to take in a new Summer wardrobe full of practical, comfortable and stylish outfits!
