Editorial Reviews

Review

Sophisticated Stitches for Favorite Dolls: Most of these patterns for swimsuit, shorts, t-shirt, coverup, tote bag, sleeping bag, pillow and sunhat are beyond the sewing skill level of a beginner, especially a tween: the shorts have cargo pockets, the coverup sides have drawstrings and sleeves have elastic to create shirring. The tote bag is lined and it, the hat and the swimsuit top have ruffles. What this publication does offer, however, is the opportunity for a duo to work together, using fabric remnants or repurposed clothes (jeans, for example, for the tote bag and hat) to practice special techniques. For example, the application of elastic to create gathers in the middle of a sleeve and making pleated patch pockets with flaps.

If you’re just beginning to sew for your children or grandchildren, the patterns also provide how-to’s for features that can help clothes avoid the “homemade” look. One example is a two-part waistband on shorts, so that only the back half is elasticized. The casings on each side seam of the swimsuit coverup show a technique that could be adapted for the side seams of children’s slacks, so that pants could be hemmed a couple of inches long and shirred with short drawstrings until more length was needed. (Parenting Press, June 3, 2014)

More About the Author

Patty Young grew up in San Jose, Costa Rica, in an environment where she was encouraged to express her creativity freely.

Over the next 12 years, Patty honed her graphic design skills at a number of marketing agencies before deciding to leave her corporate job in 2005 to stay home with her children and pursue her own creative endeavors.

Patty is a licensed textile designer for Michael Miller Fabrics and recently released her seventh collection. Her fabrics include quilting cottons and knits. She is currently working on her eighth collection which will debut Spring 2012 along with her debut book, "Sewing Modkid Style", published by Wiley.

Format: Paperback
Patty's newest book is SUPER FUN AND FABULOUS and includes patterns and instructions to create 7 stylish projects for your favorite 18" doll - cargo shorts, a t-shirt, reversible sun-hat, swimsuit cover-up, sleeping bag and pillow, beach bag and swimsuit.This book will totally hit the spot for summer crafting inspiration. Directions are clear and concise and I love that the book comes in a sleeve, perfect for storing the pattern pieces.
