Review: Otome no Sewing Book 7 (Handmade Lolita Fashion Clothes)

This is my first sewing book review and I hope you'll enjoy this post. I'm planning to post more sewing/craft book reviews in the future.

Today we're looking at Otome no Sewing Book 7 (乙女のソーイングBOOK 手作りのロリータファッション). I have book 4 to 7. As of 2018, they have released book 12.
I've stopped buying this series after book 7 because EGL's patterns are similar and doesn't change much.
If you buy 2 to 3 of the books, you'll get most of the designs. But this is just from my point of view, you're welcome to buy more of the series to get design ideas.
When I first came across this series I was excited because it was a magazine that was dedicated to EGL outfits. Gothic & Lolita Bible is nice to look through, but the pattern tutorials were more for bags or accessories.

In conclusion, book 7 has more sweet lolita theme dresses. I do like this series and the step by step picture tutorials is good. If you're looking for ELG dress patterns, this is the book for you.
(This series calls itself a book, but it's more like a magazine, I really want to refer this as a magazine and not a book).
