Pattern Magic by Tomoko Nakamichi
The copy pictured is in Japanese, but the book is currently available in English. There is a second volume that has not yet been translated (that I know of), but I hope they do it soon so I can buy it! This book is truly amazing, with incredibly beautiful patterns clearly outlined and explained. It's complicated stuff, but I hope it's not too complicated for me to figure out because I am dying to try some of these out. One of my favorite looks in the book is this bow-dress:
Stay tuned for photos of my weekend purchases and (hopefully) samples of my experiments with the new pattern book! If you've used this book and have any feedback or advice, please feel free to leave a comment!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, everyone!
