There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
the problems with the book are as follows: there are NO clear or concise diagrams or photos of the finished products.
the instructions are at times vague, incomplete or all together lacking as in not there at all.
not all projects in the book have patterns, this can be most vexing if you have never made your own patterns before.
I am an experienced sewer, I can complete and alter vogue patterns, so when I say this is not a book for beginners I have an understanding of difficulty. some of the projects are simple and very easy to sew if you know how and do not require clear concise diagrams and instructions. if you are new to sewing, or unable to sew on the fly, this is not a book for you.
Be aware that the clothing for babies have 4 sizes: 0-3 months through 9-12 months, so not for older babies.
My only complaints:
- a lack of diagrams in the instructions. They are wordy as usual, but sometimes it's easier to just glance at a picture of the next step. There are a few diagrams sprinkled throughout, but it seems like many projects don't have any.
- the photography is gorgeous but doesn't show the details of the projects always. The modern diaper bag has no shot that shows the interior at all or even the cell phone pocket on the exterior. You need to read well into the instructions to see what kind of pockets it will have.
The second item I tried were the baby booties and they just didn't turn out like the ones in the picture. I have been making shoes for my one year old daughter for months now and wanted to try a different style. I won't be trying that one again but look forward to getting around to some of the other projects as time allows.
I don't regret the purchase at all, but I am needing to make sure my expectations are realistic concerning the end result. They probably won't look just like the ones in the illustrations. I love Amy Butler fabrics and was thrilled with the book when it came in the mail, my enthusiasm has curbed a little but I don't regret my purchase at all.
The patterns and directions are pretty easy to follow. I think I found one mistake in the directions, but it wasn't a problem. The projects have turned out beyond my expectations and look great. Not a book for a sewing beginner, but great for the experienced grandma-seamstress who wants to make things that are of excellent design and look fabulous.

I would like more drawings to explain some of the details, but otherwise very good and pretty clothes to make.
