I recently used the information in this book to resize an adult cycling top into a childs size. It worked really well, however I didn't trust myself and went and bought a t-shirt in the right size and when I laid it on top of the pattern pieces I had drafted, they were right! The diagrams and measurement charts are fantastic and you can use them to create your own patterns or make those in the book and the clothes will actually fit the child you are creating for (particularly useful for me as I don't have the child at home to measure them). The book looks a little dated but don't let that put you off and it does suggest ways to adapt the patterns and items to follow fashions.
