I have fallen in love, truly I have. Let me introduce you to my new love "Making Baby Clothes" 25 Fun and Practical Projects for 0-3 Year Olds by Rob Merrett. This book is so addictive with those gorgeous and cool patterns for kids that I want to sew each and every project from this book. This book features some great projects like dungarees, hats, skirts, shirts, jackets, dresses to create by yourselt these stylish and cute baby dresses by yourself.
The book has 6 chapters nicely divided by projects starting for babies 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-9 months, 9-12 months, 2 Years and 6th chapter for 3 Years. There are also very detailed explanation on various techniques that can be used. Each project is very well explained along with clear instructions and pictures. Pull-out patterns enclosed at the end of the book.

I bought this book expecting I would have enough options for my boys. What a disappointment...

From 25 patterns, you have 8 that are actually "sew-able" for boys. 3 or 4 are for both genres, you would just have to change fabric patterns/colors and add/change some details here and there.
The cover pattern is definitively cute and is one I'll certainly make before by baby boy gets too big to wear the biggest size.
I do know that making things for girls offers you a lot more options mainly if you're crazy for bright, full-of-colors-and-ruffles clothes.
The problem is that I am a mother of 2 boys!

Another thing is that it gives you pictures only from the finished garments, the step-by-step part is completely made with drawings, which I did not like at all. I think the author just assumes you're a bit more advanced seamstress, which I am not.

If you're looking for stylish dresses for your little girl, this is your book. Otherwise, go looking for something else.

I love the baby clothing sewing books. This one is good but not great. The projects are quite limited. I have many other books with a lot more projects in them than this one. The patterns are very simple. So, that's a plus for anyone new to sewing. I will be making some of the patterns from the book, just wish there were more. I was a little disappointed.

One big plus is the patterns are already printed in their actual size. No need to enlarge.

I don't know how to adequately express how much I enjoy this book. I actually keep it next to my bed because it makes me happy just to peruse it. There is something about the little styling touches on each piece that make these designs a cut above what you normally see. It's not that that they seem complicated, but they all have something special or extra that would make it utterly clear that the garment is not off the rack. One of my most frequent daydreams is to have more time available for sewing in order to make more of these before my daughter grows too big!

PS When I learned that the author has another book out of baby clothes, my eyes welled up and I clicked Add to Cart immediately. I wish this book and the other one were viewable in amazon so you could see what I mean about the unique and absolutely darling nature of these designs.

I love love love this book!!!!!!!!!!!!I don't need to go out and buy patterns anymore.There is so much to do in this book. I couldn't figure out which one to do first. Since it's winter time I will make the dresses for my girl's and they will wear warm stockings and shirts.
There are 6 chapters. 1st chapter 0-3 months, 2 dresses and an outfit for a boy. Next, 3-6 months two dresses and a little linesman outfit. Next, 6-9 months~ 3 girl outfits and 1 boy. 9-12 months 2 boy and 3 girl outfits. Next, 2 years 3 girl and 1 boy outfit. Lastly,3 years~ 4 girl outfits and boys jacket. You can pull out patterns and trace them on pattern paper. There is a sections that gives you info on the techniques. I can't get enough of this book. I'm buying the next one that is up to 5 years old.
Great book! By the way I am a beginner sewer and hand embroider and I always thought sewing was hard but it's so easy just be patient, give it time, and don't rush though a project.

Adorable book and patterns. A must have for any seamstress. Create perfect little outfits for both boys and girls alike. Makes an excellent gift for anyone in your life that sews. Or for any new mom that wants to sew for her little sweet ones.
Highly recommended. Easy to follow instructions.

This book has adorable projects with clear instructions and very good full size patterns printed in different colors for individual pieces and different oulines for various sizes, which eliminates any confusion. Just trace and cut out. Good "technique" section in the last chapter with great tips. So far I made the "wind cheater" jacket and was very happy. It came out adorable and was pretty easy. I look forward to making other projects in this book!

I love this book with all of the great photos of children in their clothes. Love when I can make something that is close to what a designer does.
