I am so excited about this book! Stylish Dress Book by Yoshiko Tsukiori is a Japanese sewing book translated into English. It is true to the Japanese style of craft books with beautiful styling. The dresses are made with Liberty fabrics - so very inspiring! 

This is the Table of Contents. Each dress is named with a letter of the alphabet. All of the patterns are the same length and can be shortened to tunic or shirt length if preferred.

I've already ordered fabric to make two of these looks. I'll show you in a couple of months when I get them finished ;)

As is the norm with Japanese sewing books, the written instructions are short and to the point with helpful diagrams. The pattern pieces are full size and overlap on white paper.

How about a few more pages of dresses to end the post?
