It's been a whirlwind weekend with a quick trip to the Lowcountry to handle some things for my husband's 82+ year old mother, but I've been able to stay steadfast in wearing handmade clothes each day. We returned home last night. For today's Sunday, going-to-church outfit, I'm wearing my leopard linen Burda Skirt made from a pattern in the BurdaStyle Sewing Handbook, with NEWLOOK 6108's sleeveless cowl top and the recently completed cardi Pattern N, from Yoshiko Tsukiori's book 'Happy Homemade Sew Chic'. By the way, I understand Yoshiko Tsukiori recently published a new book 'Comfortable and Stylish Clothes' and can't wait to see it available in the U.S.!!! If you want to see other new releases of Japanese Sewing Books, or reviews and information of books already out, Japanese Sewing Books is a fantastic resource site.
