Lovely book with plenty of colour, but unfortunately I was a little underwhelmed - the book contained a lot of projects that are available as free patterns and tutorials on a large number of websites and blogs. However it did make a great gift for a friend who has a daughter (as there are PLENTY more ideas for girls than boys) who doesn't spend a lot of time on the internet at all. Pattern instructions are clear and well photographed.

I love this book! So far I've made the smock top (but I used the length of the nightie and made it a dress!) and the bloomers. The cord skirt and a-line dress are on my list of winter sewing. If you are interested in making children's clothes (particularly for girls) and have beginner to intermediate sewing skills, then this is a great book for you.

I love it! My new favourite book. Not that I've made anything out of it yet but I've spent hours drooling and dreaming in the 2 days since I got it. Will definitely be getting sewing soon.
