Comments about Stylish Dress Book:
Easy to follow instructions for the novice or experienced dressmaker.
I only liked 2 or 3 out of all the patterns in the book.
Still glad I purchased it though.
"This collection of 26 garments features the work of designer Tsukiori, whose blousy, romantic style is popular in her native Japan. Some of the dresses are stylish in a sweet, retro way, but a few look like children's clothing sized to fit adults, making them a little too precious-looking for most adults to wear. The directions for assembling the garments assume significant knowledge of clothing construction--there is no basic how-to information provided. Patterns for sizes 6u16 are included. VERDICT Though the garments themselves aren't particularly complex, the directions aren't very detailed; this book is most appropriate for skilled, confident sewists or fashion/design collections."--"Library Journal"
