Japanese sewing book {inspiration}

I have been in love with Japanese sewing books for a while now but always so hesitant to buy them because they are usually written in all Japanese. I always study them so hard in the bookstore wondering if my novice sewing skills can put together the patterns by just the picture. But reality tells me no, and I put the book down and walk away. 

Well, lucky me because I had a good friend visit New York a couple months ago and found one of these lovely books for me written in English! Aren't all the dresses so feminine and lovely? I haven't sewn in a while (that's another story) but this has me so excited to run to buy some cute fabric. 

Now if you want to check out something even cuter, the Japanese children's and baby clothing books are way too adorable! I'm hoping to catch a copy of that in English too.
