inspiration



some balls of yarn that are looking so pretty on my desk ... I plan on using them all during the next weeks, I love working with thicker yarns. And yes, red is one of my favorite colors.



but what I wanted to show you were my new japanese sewing pattern books.

[ISBN 4418074112]
This first one is called Robe Rouge, and it's already a favorite. Maybe because the designs are so simple and mostly in linen







[ISBN: 430928115X]
And the second one is similar to "Favorite black clothes", although not as good, in my opinion. Still, there are a couple of things in there that I might want to try ...





And because I have this thing about dresses, here's a couple more things out there that I'm loving at the moment:

floral dresses by Gudrun Sjoden



and the ruffle cotton dress by Boden

Estou obcecada com vestidos à muito tempo - e saias agora tb (não que vista. brrr, está frio e há sempre uma boa razão para vestir calças todos os dias). Tb tenho um livro novo, mas é em inglês e sem padrões, tenho que to mostrar.( e há uns vestidos de florzinhas na bershka, que devias ver!)

I absolutely LOVE that ruffle dress. I tried one on at a department store the other day, leaning more towards something from the 40's...but this one is much more attractive!
