tricks...treats...

Trick is a word with many meanings.Some imply deception;
this time it is an indirect means to gain an end.No deception here...
only an adorable Japanese pattern book and yes,you guessed it...written in Japanese.
That's the trick...getting past the "I don't understand this language" and liberating your creativeness. The trick is to rely on the skills you have,your ability to look at a picture and run with it.
In the end you will have an adorable little project,fit for an adorable little someone...
you could call it a dress, or a pinafore...a bit over over dyed lace for a flutter sleeve...
buttoned up the back...
a front pleat,and everything top stitched...
even a little pocket for some added interest...
combine that with some imported French fabric and now what do you have...yes a treat...
and before I forget...this yarn is a serious treat,like a bowl of cotton candy.
Colinette one zero...in a special color for October(breast cancer awareness month)
Whirley Fig...I love that name...now this will become a Christmas gift,so I don't want to divulge too much right now...
So I'll leave you with this:
like it says on the ribbon...

I'm so glad the sewn piece worked out!

And that wool is beautiful - the name, ackkk the name is delightful. My boy would call is 'fairy fluff'. He wouldn't be far wrong either.

Can't wait to see your adorable little one in it! I also like the cute hat she is wearing - everything about that picture appeals to me - LOL

If anyone has a chance of mastering the trick of this pattern - it's you!
well done T this looks gorgeous. i love the fabric..i have used a few adult japanese patterns and found finding the correct sizing tricky..are the childrens patterns challenging as well??

It takes a special kind of talent and eye for creativity to get past a language barrier. Awesome work.
(sigh) Everything you do is magic. (fawns) Adorable little dress and kudos on tackling another language...that's amazing.

Beautiful images t...I really do love that yarn. Absolutely scrumptious. Beautiful little dress. I have a bit of an addiction to Japanese pattern books...I just love looking at the photos.

Oh I love that fabric, it looks so pretty. I love those Japanese patterns, it is so good not to be bogged down with instructions! Liberating indeed.
