Let's Talk Fashion: Stylish Dress Book Review

I have mentioned before that I attended design school and worked in fashion for many years. And truly a day does not go by that I do not think about re-entering that field. I adore fashion and it holds a special place in my heart.

Any time I have the opportunity to play with read about and indulge in fashion I am a happy girl. Recently I was sent the Stylish Dress Book: Wear With Freedom by Yoshiko Tsukiori, published by Tuttle Publishing.

"Japanese style has long been admired for its grace and artistry. Add to that a sense of fun, and you have the Stylish Dress Book." - Tuttle Publishing

When I received the book, I immediately fell in love.
The book is GORGEOUS! Beautiful photos, great styling of not only the garments but the book itself.  The book contains full color photographs of the designs as well as complete instructions and patterns to make these fun and fashionable dresses.

I adore the dresses in this book.
There are beautiful and whimsical fabrics used, and the dresses exude a fun easy style that is totally chic and fashionable. Many (most) of the dress are easy to wear tunic or babydoll styles reflecting a relaxed style.

I did not have a chance to break out my own sewing machine yet and try a few of these, but I am putting it on  my list. I absolutely adore quite a few of the garments in the book and can see them fitting into my wardrobe effortlessly.

You can purchase the Stylish Dress Book on Amazon or at Barnes and Noble.
