#2





Project # 2 of 2010. Snapped these photos pretty quickly of the dress I just finished. Pattern from this book. 2009 Nani Iro double gauze (of course!). My first Japanese pattern that I made, only using the diagrams, and it was easy! Guess I'm getting better at this sewing business.

Oh, I love your outfit! Looks comfortable.. It's still cold in NY and I can't wait to get rid of heavy coat and scarf!

Have a great weekend!

Nice job! I own a couple of those Japanese sewing books but don't have the chops to figure out the patterns since I can't read Japanese :(
I love the colors of the fabric! (And your hair looks great too).

Hi Jennifer, I was just flipping through some of your older posts and am in love with the ankle boots you're wearing in these photos. Would you mind telling me where you got them? I've been on the search for a pair for ages now. Thanks!

Jennifer- you are going to laugh: guess: J. Crew!
They are from last spring or summer. Not sure if they still have them...
