Format: Paperback
I got this book because the dresses look gorgeous. I started to make the 1950s pintuck dress last night. I spent 2 hours trying to pintuck the bodice, before swearing, screaming, and re-cutting the fabric bigger. I read reviews on amazon.com and other people have discovered the pattern pieces for this dress are drafted wrong, so phew, it's not me, but so so cross that I wasted all that time, and energy, and expensive fabric. It seems that three pieces are wrong, and as I am a relative beginner I think redrafting the pattern is beyond me, so it's all been a waste, and I have a very disappointed 6 year old with no dress to go to her party in. These dresses look lovely, but do not attempt if you're a beginner, it will cause dangerous blood pressure.

Format: Paperback
Patterns: you need a printer and about 10-20 sheets of paper. Once printed, you need to stick them together to create actual patterns. I found the indicators (red circles) are quite misleading: they look as if they should be overlaid but in fact you need to use your imagination to place papers in the exact place. I have used other patterns with notches and indicators so it's easy to assemble, but not this one.

In actual fact, I started sewing the playsuit, but found that the pattern was wrong! Upside down! I had already sewn pockets on to the trousers according to the pattern, but then noticed that wouldn't work. The playsuit pattern is upside down, be warned.

Instructions: Not so easy to understand. Pretty pictures, but you need to know a lot about sewing. I have been sewing for quite a while but I found some instructions are too simple. It tells you to do things but doesn't tell you how to do.

I do like the designs (but then again, many of them look so nice because such lovely fabrics are used) and I am inspired, I'd love to make all of them in the book.

Whilst the clothes look gorgeous in the photographs the instructions for making them are not as comprehensive as they need to be. As a professional dressmaker I eventually had to abandon the book and use my expertise instead. All in all, not a book I would recommend for the beginner which is a shame as there are some beautiful clothes in it.

Format: Paperback
As an experienced sewer, I bought the book because it was full of clothes for boys as well as girls so I could make them for my little niece and nephews. However, the instructions are very unclear. There are no size references on the pattern pieces (e.g. square saying 'this measures 1 inch')and I love the comment that you have to use your imagination when piecing the bits together. I made the short sleeved shirt twice- the 2nd time without the instructions and alterating the length of the body pieces considerably (the measurements in the book were far too short). The chiffon and lace dress, made with the measurements given in the book, is 4 inches too wide, making it look very square and boxy. The top of the sleeve was missing, collar was too small and you had to guess as to how wide the sleeves should be, especially as there are no instructions on how to do the sleeves other than 'look at the picture'!
I commented and asked questions on her facebook page two weeks ago but haven't had any reply yet.

I have just made 2 different sizes of the cover dress. They were quite easy, but I agree that some previous experience is necessary. I thought the instructions were quite good. They came out exactly like the photo shots and I am really pleased with the results. I am looking forward to making some of the other designs. The fabric I used was very similar to the photo and I bought it from HobbyCraft store, not that expensive.I recommend this book to anyone who likes to make special clothes for children.
