Description

Yoshio Tsukiori is a name familiar to every fan of Japanese sewing books because of her elegantly casual designs for women and children. In Sewing for Your Girls she provides new patterns and instructions for clothes that will fit your budget and your little girl's personal style and body type perfectly. This book shows you how to select carefree, pretty and inexpensive fabrics that you can easily turn into clothes your girls will love to wear every day-for very little money! The patterns can be used in endless variations to create literally hundreds of different styles."Raw, confrontational and aimed directly at anyone who has decided to take a hike from life, hide out for a while and reinvent who you are in another culture, it lays bare the vulnerability of the human psyche...Not for the fainthearted, this will take you on a journey which will be hard to forget, will hit deep and will, providing you enjoy this hard hitting style of writing, keep you entertained to the last page as you struggle, with Newbie, to discover just what life is really all about." -Blue Wolf Reviews
"This book is delightful. [...]As well as the patterns the book also has a wealth of clearly photographed advice to give you the best chance of getting a great result." -Pendle Stitches blog
