Nani Iro Pattern Book by Naomi Ito

nanicover.jpg As an avid crafters, collectors of inspirational materials and fans the Japanese aesthetic, we could barely contain our glee when we spotted this new book by Naomi Ito, a Japanese textile designer on Purl Soho's (one of our all time favorite fabric and knitting shops) blog. Her new collection is absolutely gorgeous, and we love the simple, elegant silhouettes and delicate details in the patterns in this book. The book features clothing for women and girls and accessories too..


Since we're always looking for great wedding details here at H!L, these would make adorable flower girl dresses - and simple to make! None of the patterns in the book have zippers, a few of the patterns have hook and eye closures or buttons. Purl Soho also has a helpful guide to working with Japanese patterns.


And these purses would be fabulous bridesmaids' gifts...


And we just love the cool little tucks on these...
