I love these really simple, layer-able looks with great details. And I love that these books have 16-30 patterns for so few dollars. But this girl doesn't know Japanese (which came as a great shock to a number of elitist patrons at my former job O.o )
So two options present themselves to me now: 1. Put off pattern making until Summer Break or 2. Work extra hard and spend less time on distracting social media rabbit holes to make time to sew.
Or I suppose a combination plate of less social media with a side of planning for Summer Break.
From any way I come at it, though, an eccentric wardrobe and myfutureself are inextricably connected and will one day meet.
