This book contains 10 fantastic patterns with easy to follow instructions.
Rachel Humble
I've tried a good 6 or so "sewing for girls" type books and this is the only one where I really felt like I got something awesome and worth it.
Aimee Steinberger
I would highly recommend this book and patterns to anyone that enjoys sewing for children.

I've been waiting for this book to come out since Nancy first mentioned it on her blog. As a devotee of Farbenmix and Studio Tantrum patterns, I knew that this book was going to be something that I wanted. I prefer these patterns for several reasons: they have great fit with growing room; the designs are easily adapted to be simply made or given the full-on embellishment treatment; the designers seem to think "outside the box" when creating their patterns, resulting in garments that are dynamic in motion and fit beautifully with an original twist.

I really like this book, it does have its drawbacks (as any book does), so I'll list the Pros and Cons as I see them in order to give a balanced review.

PROS:
-10 multi-sized patterns, 3 or 4 of which are not available as separate patterns and some which are being discontinued for the cost of 1 or 2 if purchased individually. You can't beat that deal.

A couple of things to note about my video review:

1. I did a video review to give others a better look inside the book.
2. Please read some of the other reviews. There are much better seamstresses than me who left very detailed comments.
3. I did not realize that this book came with 10 patterns, until I received it. This is a tremendous value $$.

Really, a great book, just short on boys inspiration. Overall this makes a great reference book. ENJOY!

The girls who make Farbenmix/Studio Tantrum patterns have written a book! and it comes with PATTERNS! I just got it today, so I haven't studied it in depth, but looks great so far. Unlike some of the other reviewers, I happen to love the busy prints and whimsical stylings that are the hallmark of Farbenmix patterns. There is lots of ruching, gathers, and trims for lots of texture and visual interest, but you can also make toned down versions of their patterns which are very stylish and wearable as well. The book has lots of really amazing full-color illustrations and from the looks of it, the directions (and accompanying drawings) are much more comprehensive than what you get with the regular Farbenmix patterns. I have never had problems with the patterns before, but I've seen people lamenting their lack of clarity, so this seems like it would be a big improvement for beginning sewists, especially.

The only thing I'm not liking (and it's relatively minor) is that the patterns are printed on normal pattern tissue paper instead of the heavier white paper that individual Farbenmix patterns come printed on. It will make repeated tracings more difficult, for sure.

I understand that the individual Feliz pattern and a few others--Imke, Insa & Dortje, maybe?--are being discontinued, but they are included in this book, so you can still buy them and really it's cheaper this way. The fit of Farbenmix/Studio Tantrum patterns, and the ease with which they come together is so far superior to any of the "Big 3" patterns, I don't even waste my money buying them any more. The patterns in this book each cover sizes 18mo-2T to 11/12. Additionally, the first third of the book covers proper fitting, pattern alterations, and even instructions for making a dress form.

I think the patterns are great and simple to sew - if you have a bit of experience. I have been sewing for 20 years and have taken many classes. I found the directions to be hard to follow. I don't know how a novice sewer could follow the directions with success. My concerns - you have to do a lot of reading in several places to really understand the directions. In some cases, directions are written for something not pictured - the feliz dress and buttons. what buttons? no drawing or picture exists to give one a hint of their use. the pattern pieces like burda, have no seam allowances, i wish the author had printed this on the pattern pieces themselves as a second reminder. as well, the author states to hem a garment, but provides no guidelines on hems for each garment. hem allowances are not provided on the pattern pieces

I would suggest a novice sewer or intrepid sewer first write out their own instructions before cutting into their fabric.

Great patterns, needs more close up pictures of the garments and their options. while the clothing is simple sewing, i suggest a sewer purchase an individual pattern from the author first.
