my first japanese book attempt :)

i have a special spot for japanese craft books! PP gave me my very first book, which is this. and it has led to several more like this, this and more recently, this! don't you just love the cover? im buying this in preparation for sewing flower girl dresses :)

and i got many more! haha. silly? considering i do not even know how to read japanese? :)


so here was the first project i wanted to embark on: i don't know if its a dress or a top. well, since the english title read "layered one piece", this was good for layering.  pair it with a sweater, tights and ballet flats and you're good to go:)

Thank God for giving you this gift, you will indeed make a good wife. keep persevering as the Lord enables you to do all these for His glory.

It is such a privilege to buy the first book for you!
