Dress -White and Navy

The othe day, I went to Nippori, the biggest fabric market town you know, and got some nice fabrics at very cheap price there!

Can you believe that this adorable fabric is only 100yen a meter?

I used the bi-colored dress pattern that I had provided until the end of last month. 

I really love this dress, and I'm going to wear this with vivid colored tights. :)

Knit x Leather = Cool!

I made this sweater for my husband using the same pattern which I used to make for my father-in-low. It seemed to be too simple for him, and I thought and thought.... and got a good idea!

I put small pieces of leather on chest and shoulder.

It is very cool, isn't it? :)

Gifts for our Parents

for my husband's mother
I don't know if you know or not, most of Japanese apparel shops sell clothes only in a few sizes - size 9 or 11.  So it's so difficult for larger or smaller sized people to get their clothes, and they can only choose them by size, not by design.

My mother-in-low is about size 13 or 15, and she complains about that. And she asked me to make her clothes.
I made this sweater as a girt for her birthday. It has very wide dolman sleeves, and I suppose it 's very comfortable and its beautiful color suits her very well.
I hope she will like it! :)

for my husband's father
And I made this sweater for my father-in-low as well. He is 10 years older than his wife, and he is sometimes misunderstood that he is her 'father' !  I hope he will look younger in this sweater.

for my mother

And my mother is also one of those people who have problems about getting their clothes.
She is very small, about size 3 or 5.
I measured her size in details when I met her about a month ago, and I made her personal sloper.
So this shirt fits her very well. She looked so happy with it, and asked me to make more clothes! 
I was so happy too to hear that.

Now, I MUST make my father's clothes as well... He sometimes wears women's T shirts. haha
