Review

"[…] I've had this book for a couple years in Japanese already. I knew I could wholeheartedly recommend it without even reading the translated version, but I couldn't have imagined how much more I like it now that I can read the words inside!" — OneGirlCircus.com

"Happy Homemade patterns are my go to for pajamas, hoodies, pants, and tops. Without a doubt it is my most used pattern book." —ElsieMarley.com

"The best thing about Sew Chic for Kids is that I love pretty much every pattern in it." —Very Shannon

"If you want to make quick and simple play clothes for your kids, then this book is just the thing!" —Sew-In-Love

"For anyone who has previously used the Japanese language sewing pattern books, you are in for such a treat! Now, instead of skipping over the Japanese symbols, just admiring the beautifully taken photographs, and then turning to the diagrams and illustrations, you will have the pleasure of being able to easily read all the important and fun details that give character to a book." —Sewn By Angela

"My daughter loves her very first Happy Homemade Gudrun Sjoden fabric dress!" —IvyArch

"If you are a mom with a sewing machine, Sew Chic Kids is the perfect book for you." —Liz Abderholden, Editor of FaveCrafts.com

"Some seriously pretty smock tops and dresses, in fact." —TillyandtheButtons.com

Simple, classic patterns for boys and girls. Diagrams and simple instructions along with a variety of styles and sizes makes this a "must-have" book for intermediate and advanced sewers. The only problem I had was in the actual patterns that DON'T have the seam allowances OR hems added. It was clear that the seam allowances had to be added, but it was not as clear that the hem allowances were also to be added. Once that was clarified, the patterns went together beautifully.

Seriously Japanese patterns are the best, most versatile for kids! Now to have these instructions in English is icing on the cake!

I have made half a dozen patterns from this book already, on the way to making most of them, I imagine. The patterns are easy (many are variations on other patterns- simple dress is one pattern; shortened version becomes a tunic, another version has flutter sleeves) and have all been winners. I think the patterns run true-to-size but only if you remember to add those seam allowances! (I forgot to do so a couple of times and things turned out on the small size.) You really could make a very serviceable wardrobe just from this book alone, and of the course the book itself is just lovely. A valuable purchase for anyone who enjoys sewing simple, timeless children's clothing.
