Yes, they are cute dresses, with interesting details. Good instructions.

These clothes are made from really basic shapes which makes them pretty easy to stitch up but, agreed, they aren't terribly figure flattering as is. With a little tuck or dart here and there or even just a belt, though, they do take shape nicely. What I like about the overall simple shapes, though, is that they are great for showcasing a special fabric or embellishing and when it comes to "art to wear", these clothes ARE much more figure flattering than what one usually sees in that category! :)

An interesting collection of dresses with patterns. Some very nice inspirations for what to do with unique and beautiful fabric. The biggest criticism is that the lack of support in the dresses and the style means that these are meant for the petite, thin woman. Some can be easily adapted as a tunic tops for more full-figured or older women.

By crickey, these dresses are cute! If you can expand a pattern from a drawing in a book (pretty straighforward), there are some nice choices here. Loose fitting and a bit boxy for my taste, but some good ideas here (though I think the cute part comes from the models and not the specific dresses, re the boxy shapes).

Is it just me or does it look as though most of these dresses are 2-3 sizes too big for the model?! Completely uninspiring and disappointing to see such frumpy, paper bag clothes...

Lets cut to the chase:) Japanese people are very artistic and smart, but I am tired of their translation as I am already part fluent in the Japanese language (I am non Japanese descendant). All this model need is a hijab and niqab to match the two volumes of knit kimono and Knitted Socks East and West. Why so serious. I am not buying your so-called innocent business plan anymore. That was mean...
