This book looks lovely and the patterns are very cute. I was slightly disappointed that several of the patterns only went up to age 1 when the book said 0-3 but the older kids' patterns are lovely too. The problem with this book is the same one that I have had with other pattern books from this publisher - it just isn't very accurate. Most of the patterns are in 3 sizes on the pattern sheet, but you are only told one size to cut of the various rectangles and extra bits needed. The first pattern I made from this required far more fabric than the book suggested. Fabric amounts are only given for one size which may be the problem. I've just finished making a top for my daughter who is small for her age and it was clearly going to be way too short for her. Fortunately I realised and added in an extra piece to make it longer - but this is frustrating in what is otherwise an excellent collection of ideas for beautiful-looking clothes. I wouldn't buy this if you are a complete beginner and hopefully the publisher will take note and improve their technical editing.

This book is not for the novice. The instructions are difficult to follow and in some cases, wrong. Far from getting 25 different patterns, it is a few, drawn several times over in different colours.

Very poor value for money.

It feels like all the projects are of a varied and type that most people can manage. Even the little 'boy' type projects could easily be made girly and then most could easily fulfil my wants for all things feminine - got a grand daughter after 3 sons followed by three grandsons!

Great book but I would have been flummoxed by some of the instructions if I hadn't been an experienced dressmaker. First project for my granddaughter turned out really well.
