A bargain with great ideas, 11 Oct 2010
For just over seven quid you get 25 patterns, which is a bargain in my book (har). The patterns I have made so far have worked perfectly (the cape and the unisex trousers; perhaps it's the capri trousers that others are complaining about? Too girly for my daughter so I'm not going to bother making them anyway), but it's the inspiration that I value. I've got a whole stash ready to make most of the projects in this book; the simple nature of the patterns means they can cater to all occasions and many cloths. They may not be cutting-edge, but you can make them that way with your own creative spark, by dint of their design. However, their simplicity makes them cutting-edge in their own way: the boy's shirt is an example, where the naive style makes it look pretty blooming modern.
On the flip side, there are a couple of good old-fashioned party frocks in there too, ready for Christmas time.
