what have i gotten myself into?

if you have a little girl . . . even if you don't have a little girl . . . and if you love to sew . . . ok even if you don't even know how to sew . . . you have to look at this completely adorable jumper! i have fallen in love with it and i just found the book with the pattern on ebay and ordered it. sounds great right? well . . . it's from a japanese sewing book! how in the world am i going to figure out how to recreate these patterns? i did take 2 years of japanese in high school . . . but i don't think i can remember 1 thing from those 2 years and i'm pretty sure we didn't learn any words that pertain to sewing.

since i have become a blog addict, i am coming across more and more bloggers who sew from japanese books and i'm so curious about this. i can't wait to get my new book . . . it was my little gift to myself since tomorrow is my birthday!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY GIRLS!!! I love the mismatched shoes and I love even more that you let her be her own little person. I'm a big fan of that which was why Claire went through a phase where she would only wear rain boots. It didn't matter what she was wearing, she had to have her rain boots!
