Japanese sewing books, originally uploaded by indiaeden.

These gorgeous books arrived this morning from Japan. I've been admiring Japanese sewing books for a while. Most of the ones I'd seen until recently featured understated simplicity,with beautiful detailing,but all styles I couldn't wear with my curves in a million years.
I spotted these a couple of weeks ago here,and simply had to have them. i think I love everything in them,and have even already started making this blouse.

made a start already!

I am having to make a fair few alterations.I'm not a petite Japanese woman,so even the largest size is too small for me,but I *think* I'm getting there.......

(if you click on the pics above it'll take you to flickr and more pics from the books.)

Don't be shy, say hello!
