I love Japanese fashion and have bought several pattern books to browse through. Alas, I will probably never make any as I learned in Japan that my short chubby figure does not suit Japanese fashion. Sigh.

Some of the books have been translated into English and made with larger patterns. I've found them on Amazon. This book is good because everything's so boxy it makes easy yet artsy loungewear, and you can figure it all out from the pictures.

That's a cleverly styled dress and suits you nicely.

Thanks! I got it in under the wire. I like your tops for the contest, too--you've been busy!

This is such a unique garment. Your fabric selection will allow lots of wearing options. Very cute!

Nice work! It's really interesting to hear the sort of pattern pieces this came from and how you modified it!

Thanks! The Japanese pattern books for children also have really nice patterns. I like the books with bag patterns as well. You can find a lot of them on Etsy and EBay, but is cheaper coming to the states.

Totally great dress -comfort and fashion in one garment. Excellent. And, the short length dress was a good choice for the gladiator sandal Accessory Contest.
