I was so happy to have my latest purchase in the mailbox yesterday - Sewing Clothes Kids Love by Nancy Langsdon of Tantrum Studios/Fledge and Sabine Pollehn of Farbenmix. I have my work cut out for me the next few days, browsing and studying the 144 colorful, inspiring pages. The book includes 10 full-sized patterns, making it a great value for the price. I love all the bright fabrics and creative trims, although my fabric selections are never quite this wild. The sizes range from 18 months - 12, so I can use them for both my girls for years to come. Abby (my 7 year-old) looked through this book last night and picked out a tank top and leggings for my first project. I was hoping she'd love the frilly Feliz dress or lovely Manhattan dress, but those will move over to my list for Mallory ( age 2) before she starts to protest frills! There is a nice jacket pattern for boys, but Drew (age 8) is already in a size 14. If you're looking for some sewing inspiration and great boutique patterns, check out this book!
Look at these beautiful pictures from the Flickr photo pool...Time to get back to reading!
