Wow! I have this book - now I just need to figure out how to use it. I like your black floor too!

I forgot, here is a useful link to a Japanese-English couture lexicon with other information.

That is a really interesting piece! Love that you are using a Japanese pattern book. I am not ready for that yet!

You are very courageous to tackle a foreign language pattern. You figured it out and created a beautiful and unique vest. Worn short or long it looks fabulous!

Wonderful !!! I am very much intrigued by those Japanese patterns. I think I will order one or two books to give it a try. Since there is a big hole in the centre, could it be worn as an asymmetric poncho that would fall on one shoulder ? Very interesting. Thank for this great review. You have a great sense of style. Your choice of patterns are great, great, great !

Lovely! These japanese patterns are amazing! I ordered the book and can't wait to get it. Your fabric looks like an excellent choice for this pattern!

alright, I gotta get this book, particularly since a professor I work for is from Kyoto and can translate...
