Sewn With Love: Classic Patterns for Children's Clothes and Accessories

by Fiona Bell

I absolutely love looking through this book. The clothing is very vintage-y and the styles range from 1950ish to 1970s the instructions are illustrated rather than photographed which add to the vintage feel. I actually have not made anything from this book because I always get stuck looking at the pictures! The clothing ranges from newborn sizes to about 8 years and a cd included with the book containing PDF’s of all the patterns.

If you read some of the reviews on Amazon you will notice that there have been some individuals who have had problems with the instructions and pattern pieces. So be aware that you may need to make some adjustments to the pattern pieces or instructions–it may be for an experienced sewer rather than a novice. (I plan to use this book in the summer to make a dress for my niece and I will let you know how it goes.)

However, this book offers plenty of visual inspiration and is truly beautiful to look at and on that reason alone I would definitely recommend it!
