Sew stylish clothes for your children with this enjoyable sewing book.

Today's DIY sewing generation loves to outfit their kids in stylish homemade clothes, and kids love clothes that feel good. Designer Ruriko Yamada draws from her own experiences as a mom to create designs and sewing patterns that are fun to wear, easy to make and infused with covetable Japanese style. A wide range of sewing designs are covered from --tops and shorts for boys and girls, girls' dresses, and unisex pieces. Happy Homemade: Sew Chic Kids features easy-to-follow diagrams, Japanese sewing patterns in English, and simple instructions on how to make twenty super-comfy pieces for both boys and girls.

Sewing patterns include:

Pin-Tucked Blouse
Dress with Flared Sleeves
Knee-Length Shorts
Tiered Skirt
Boy's Stand-Up Collar Shirt
Pull-Over Parka

Yamada provides four sizes of westernized patterns, each of which can easily be adjusted to fit children from three to nine years old. Simple lines give kids room to move, and the classic styles look good on any frame. Sewing for children has never been easier. With Happy Homemade, you'll whip up a fantastic, money-saving wardrobe in practically no time at all!
