We recently got a scanner, and I'm trying it out with this post!
Check & Stripe (isn't that the best name for a store/ brand ever??) is a dry goods/ fabric store in Japan. They have also published a small series of lifestyle/ crafting books. These are two that I purchased on my recent trip to the Kinokuniya.
The books are full of A.P.C. -esque garments and beautiful photographs (the books come with sewing patterns & instructions in Japanese).
