I went to Kinokuniya the other day with my mother. I had to feign calmness so she wouldn’t think I was completely out of my gourd. I didn’t have much time to browse, but I did manage to snag a couple of books.
This one is all about T-shirts! I happen to have a thing about T-shirts, so I was pretty excited to find this:
ISBN is 4-07-247054-6
The other book I got is Simple Chic, a sewing book by Machiko Kayaki. I have one of her skirt books, and I love it! The subtitle of this one is “Dress Up, Dress Down.” Cute, huh.
And some shots from the book:
I love that green dress. I don’t know that I’d have occasion to wear it, but I might need to make it anyway. Maybe I’ll wear it while walking Deedle. The ISBN is 4-579-10961-9.
can we have matching dresses since we don’t live in the same town? (only you have to make both of them) i got some quilt/home project books at kino in NY but am too lazy to post them. you’ll get to see them when you come visit tho.
I have some wonderful Japanese sewing books that I have (*sigh*) never used. But maybe you’ll inspire me!
Hope the settling in is going smoothly. How’s Deedle doing?
You can make me one of those green ones too. 🙂
Love the dog whizzing t-shirt.
I have that book too! Lovely isn’t it? I’d probably make one of each eventually. Only problem is I can only understand the pictures. LOL Enjoy! Looking forward to see your sewing FOs.
those books are great! LOL it’s funny to try and be calm when we’re soo happy about finding goodies!
i like the green dress too! it’s nice enough to wear on a Hot summer day for a lunch or something!
Those look great! Can you believe I’ve been in NY for almost a month and still haven’t hit Kinokuniya? While I have a serious budget (what with the job-hunt thing,) I may have to remedy that soon.
The dresses are amazing ! Thanks for the ISBN, I’m going to try and find myself a copy 🙂
The green dress would make a lovely bridesmaid dress (I’m not into the froofy, pastel “bridesmaidy” type dresses – even thou I had them at my wedding – it was 1976)
i would like my own stamping ground, too, little doggie.
I was just curious which Kinokuniya you go to, I’m a PDXer and I love the books you post on your blog!
I am so jealous! My local Kinokuniya just reduced their craft section to one shelf and added cases and cases of Manga. I guess that’s what sells here 🙁
oh no! it’s too bad you bought that t-shirt book because actually i have the same one i want to get rid of! i bought it thinking it would be different, i thought it would have bags (i looked at the bag cover) and that it would have some how to or handicraft stuff, but i was wrong.. anybody else want it? i’ll send it for postage cost and maybe a ball of yarn if you’re feeling generous!
that green dress is very very cute. i wish i knew how to sew!
