kids clothes inspiration

I have these books checked out from my friend Tiffany's craft/sewing library.

above all, this one is my favorite!

the dresses in the book are absolutely adorable 
and I love the nostalgic styling!

oh how much I love the Japanese kids clothes books!
and I wish I could be in those dresses!!

all the pattern are in size 4~7, which my daughter has still a few more years to grow into.
but I may copy some/all patterns anyway, so I have them for later.

another great thing about this book is it is all in English.
so if you're Japanese sewing book lover, but intimidated by Japanese sewing instructions,
this might be a good one to start with :)
(not to mention that most of Japanese sewing instructions come with some diagrams and easy to figure out!)

these books ARE in English :)!
hope more and more Japanese sewing/craft books will be translated :) (not to mention that it's pretty easy to figure out the instructions because they, most of the time, come with illustrations/diagrams.)

Thanks for this. Personally I like simple carefree clothes for my little girl just like the ones in the photos.
