This review is from: Sewing Clothes Kids Love (Spiral-bound)
My daughter 2 and nieces 4 and 5 adored the clothes in this book. Not for shrinking violet children or mums: personally I loved the colourful clothes. The book sparks a whole host of ideas which sends your mind running off on flights of fancy of glorious riotous unadulterated colour and fun. It is more of a dip in for inspiration, rather than a real learn to sew book ( and thats fine -it gives tips and hints where it can) but my goodness what inspiration!. The patterns are based on European tradition where you trace off and add your own seam allowances, and it has a variety of projects included- more for girls than boys (though they are not left out). The text is clearly written, with wit and the book is encouraging rather than merely showing off the clearly talented authors work. This would be a perfect mothers day gift for any mummy who loves sewing.
Just as a P.S. I have made up some of these clothes in more classic fabric combinations (velvet combined with liberty prints) The patterns have worked well and the look although totally different, they were lovely and much admired- especially the fluted hem jacket.
