While there are several cute patterns in this book, I think it would be nice to know that there are only a few for each size. All my favorite patterns in here are for 3-9 months. Then there is a section with 1-2 year patterns. There is only a few patterns that fit 3-5 year olds, and my daughters were 2 and 4 when I bought this so I was kinda bummed. The recommended fabric length is odd, because it recommends fabric for one size, (for example, one yard for a size 1) but if you are doing a different size (say, size 2) you have to figure out how much fabric to buy on your own. I really wish some of these patterns were bigger! I also think it should be noted that the majority of these items do not have sleeves, so if you live in an area with cooler weather this is not the book for you!

I received this book as a gift and was excited to finally have time to use it. I chose the Millefiori pattern in size 9 months, traced and cut the patterns, and got to work. However, what I quickly discovered after a number of hours of work was that the pant leg patterns just didn't match up. I quadruple-checked my work to make sure I'd cut the right patterns and I had. I fudged through the pant portion and continued. Then, I found that the bodice and pant portion didn't match up, forcing me to put gathers on the sides (which are mostly hidden due to the skirt portion of the outfit). When all was said and done, after many modifications to the pattern to make everything line up, the outfit didn't fit my small daughter. The modifications I had to make to the pants put the crotch up too high so the shoulder straps pull very tightly.

Another minor negative are the directions. There were some points where I had to infer directions if it didn't state something explicitly.

I gave the book 2 stars because it has some really cute patterns. But don't expect to go through this pattern without modifications.

I can't speak to any other patterns in this book.

Cute is the understatement of the year for the gorgeous, unique, and easy-to-sew creations in this book. There are patterns for kids' clothing from ages 0-5, but a little creative genius on your part can extend the life of these styles to older kids. The colorful photos and clear instructions will have you stitching while saving on clothes shopping.

I bought this book weeks ago with the intention of making clothes for my son from it, as well as making baby clothes to give to a homeless shelter for pregnant women. I have made several of the infant projects (bought a roll of tracing paper at the local art supply store and traced out a piece for each size, b/c that's easier for me). I have made the dress on the cover, the shorts on page 9, the overalls on pg 12 (by the most complicated piece for me), the dress on pg 20, and the dress on pg 24. There were a couple of times I tossed out the directions and did the sewing my way; which was easier than the way the directions wanted it done. The double crosser dress would have been more complicated had not been experienced in sewing shopping bags to look like their plastic counterparts. Did notice that in a few patterns there really wasn't enough diagrams, and some how-to-do's were glossed over. Sewing wise I am somewhere between novice and low level intermediate. I can sew, and follow directions....but I can't do too many fancy things (and yes, zippers mess me up almost every time), that's just to FYI where my skill level is coming from. As to the comments about all the infant pieces being no sleeves, I recommend pairing the jumpers with long sleeved onesies or shirts for cooler to cold days. Also, I don't make the clothes to look exactly like they are in the book. I don't really want to copy what they did, that was cute yes; but doesn't always fit with the fabric(s) I have on hand...all of which were made using remnants. I have yet to buy more than a 1 yard to make anything. But now that I've traced out the larger clothes I suspect that will need to change. It's still a solid book for making kids clothes.

Cute patterns, but may not be for the beginner. The instructions aren't the greatest,but if you have sewed before you can figure it out easily.

This is one of my favorite books!! Along with the other book this author had written. I love the patterns too! I haven't done everything in this book but I stopped purchasing patterns because I had patterns from this book. This is a great book to add to your library. Will update review after I try more projects!
