Guide Review - Sewn with Love - Classic Patterns for Childrens Clothes and Accessories

Is there any new parent who has not looked for the clothing of yesteryear to dress their newborn or toddler? This book has all the basics to create those clothing that are so saute after.The dresses on the cover are just the beginning.

The book is divided into four sections with projects to sew for babies, playtime, parties and bedtime. Age appropriate clothing resounds through out the book. choked full of patterns that evoke the nostalgia of childhood in a less hurried era.

Being ever conscious of costs I compared the cost of this book and the cost of just a couple of patterns that are similar to the designs included in this extensive book. I can state with complete confidence that if you normally pay full price for sewing patterns, Sewn with Love, Classic Patterns for Children's Clothing and Accessories by Fiona Bell is an economical choice.

Patterns for sizes 0-3 Months through 7-8 years are included on a CD in the rear cover of the book. The patterns are in PDF format so the printing should not be any kind of issue for someone with Adobe Reader installed.
