I just bought this book and boy am I in love with it or what! Every single pattern in this book is great and I want to make it. Just thought I'd enable a few of you

I've never knitted a garment though so I am a little scared how long it might take.

Wow! That book looks great. What lovely styles. If you're worried about how long some of the garments would take to knit, maybe you can start with one that recommends a bulkier yarn... less stitches per inch... less time. I think there might be a nice cropped bolero in the book? I started knitting some kids sweaters before tackling one for myself kind of for the same reason -- the time factor -- plus my inexperience (I only knit 2 scarfs & a shawl before starting on a sweater.) To tell you the truth, I think I knit a kids size 6 sweater in less time than it took me to knit my first pair of socks!

Yes, I'm really interested in this one too. And we share the same first name! Fitting knitted garments is something I really want to learn.

since I'm totally in love with my "simple knitted bodice" also by Stephanie Japel, this might go onto my amazon wishlist :)

This book is already on my wishlist. Even though I don't know how to knit. Yet.
