If you are new to sewing/dressmaking this would be a good buy, but if you are more accomplished it might be a little too simple.
The book says clothes from 0-5 years but the majority of the patterns are for 2-5 yrs with a couple of items for babies, for example the very cute shoes are 0-9 months so too small for my daughter who is just going into 12-18 months size but practically everything else is too big for her, although I will look at scaling down the patterns.
Don't get me wrong, once she is bigger I will make lots and lots of the designs in the book, it is beautifully photographed with really clear instructions I just feel it should have been titled Making clothes for Girls!
On the flip side, there are a couple of good old-fashioned party frocks in there too, ready for Christmas time.
I made the dress on the cover to start with, but the pattern didnt seem right, it only made a top because there was only a pattern for the lining not the full length dress (my daughter is only 2). I couldn't find any aditional pattern markings like it said there should be, also i didnt have enough fabric from what it said on the instructions. My friend couldn't make sense of it either. BUT because i have been sewing for sometime I was able to adapt the pattern. I was very happy with the outcome in the end and will be attempting loads more things from this book.
Lovely pictures too - though be warned if you used the same fabric as that in the book the outfits could work out to be quite expensive!
