"... you can interpret these patterns to suit your own style and life--or party for that matter...With 26 dresses, tops, jackets and skirts provided in Stylish Party Dresses, I think this book does represent good value for your spend if the designs appeal and suit you." --Sew Busy Lizzy blog "... I'm a fan of Yoshika Tsukiori's Dress books. I bought the hugely popular Stylish Dress Books one and two a few years back. I've made a couple of things from them which get regular wear and I enjoy the pleasure of looking through them for dressmaking inspiration, the clothes and the styling are always a treat for the eyes. [...] Inside it you will find 26 garments for formal occasions- think weddings, special occasions, even funerals. They are not all dresses. Instead there a mix of tops, skirts jackets, two-piece sets and a jump suit as well as dresses. Formality is key. This is reflected in both the designs and the fabrics used." --Very Kerry Berry blog "Occasion dresses are everywhere, but the "right" occasion dresses are few and far between. I cannot tell you how many times I've searched through my closet and come up devastated because I can't find that perfect dress for the wedding, birthday, baby shower, or casual get together I've been invited to. With Yoshiko Tsukiori's gorgeous and simple designs, Stylish Party Dresses has kept me in style all year round." --Madison Bowes, Editor, blog "Of all the books I've received [...] this is the one that has most excited me. Yoshiko Tsukiori will be well known to anyone who has sewn from a Japanese pattern book. She created the extremely popular Stylish Dress Books and the Happy Homemade series. The styles suit so many people." --Top Notch blog "I saw the Japanese version of Stylish Party Dresses in Tokyo earlier this year, so I'm so excited to get my hands on the newly released English version! [...] With 26 designs to choose from, having this one book covers you for any special occasion you have coming up. The author, Yoshiko Tsukiori has done it again with simple, minimalist designs which put the fabric in the spotlight." --Sew in Love blog "This book is named Stylish Party Dresses by our favorite Japanese Sewing Book authors -- Yoshiko Tsukiori. If you are not familiar with her, she's the author of many many sewing books [...] There are 26 projects you can make in this book, but not all are for dresses. Included are 3 bolero patterns that you can use with the dresses as cover-ups." --Japanese Sewing Books blog "I suspect Stylish Party Dresses will be an equally popular addition to Tsukiori's books published in English. It's a lovely book which, in addition to 16 dresses, also includes boleros, tops, skirts, a slip and a jumpsuit." --An English Girl at Home blog "A stunning combination of fabric choice, simplicity of design, and enticing details add up to dazzling fashion combinations on page after page." --Midwest Book Review
