Japanese sewing books
I recently made a trip to a near by library and took out these sewing books. One on the right in the first picture is very helpful, and the book teaches you techniques about how to make scalloped hem, different way to do button holes and what not. One on the left is from early 90s. The book has really lovely dresses, and it comes with a pattern you can trace. One of my problems with vintage or old patterns is that they look cute in the pictures, but do not fit right in the real life. So I am looking at these pictures for just inspiration sake. Those dresses kind of remind me of little house on the prairie.
