I picked up the book on the right in Sydney and am really keen to make a few things from it - despite the fact they're more summer clothes than winter, which is what Hazel really needs! The fabrics are two voiles and a stripy knit. I realised after taking the photo that there probably isn't enough of the blue flowers to make the Figgy's tunic, so I'll have to find something else. I suspect it wouldn't have been a good match anyways, the fabric is quite stiff and the tunic looks like it needs a softer fabric.
Btw the Japanese book is called 'Sweet Girl's Clothes' (or something like that) by Araki Yuki, ISBN 978-4-529-04951-1, published last year. I'll try and take some photos of the patterns this week, they're really sweet.
