There are only 4 dress patterns, 2 apron patterns and 1 skirt pattern in sizes 2/3, 4/5, 6/7, 8/10, 12/14. The rest are accessories, toys and room decorations. So, if you are looking for a clothing sewing book for the little girl in your life you may want to check out some other books.
I can't fault the book for the lack of clothing patterns. It was more of a buyer error for not really looking at it before I bought it. The front of the book does say 21 sewing projects to make for little girls. I believed this to be a sewing book. The reason I am giving it 4 stars is because there are 4 completely no-sew projects and quite a few others that require very little sewing. This is mostly a crafting book - albeit a really fun one.
The projects are:
1. Mary's Sash Dress
2. Tallulah Halter Dress
3. Josie Dress
4. Agnes Tunic Dress
5. Sophie Glittered Apron
6. Georgia Tulle Ballet Skirt
7. Annabel Apron with Frilly Pocket
8. Hadley Headband
9. Penelope Ruffle-Top Purse
10. Chloe Paper Doll Overnight Bag
11. Girls' "Ambassador of Goodwill Badges
12. Fiona Fabric Flower Pin/Barrette
13. Bridget Banner with Pom-Poms
14. Gigi Ruffled Pillow
15. Willow Small Pillow with Pom-Poms
16. George the Puppy
17. Genevieve Patchwork Square Quilt
18. Olivia Floral Lamp Shade
19. Katie Eliza Canopy and Pinwheel Strands
20. Molly Patchwork Memory Board
21. Happy Birthday Banner
There are lots of wonderful projects to choose from. Cute home decor, gifts, aprons and my favorite-really cute dresses. My 7 yo daughter thought the book was hers when it arrived. She has since viewed it many times and has asked me to make her 1 of everything in the book, espeically the dresses and filled tutus... She wants one in every fabric imaginable created by Jennifer Paganelli. What can I say? The girl has great taste at such an early age.
The instructions and illustrations are all easy to follow and in a short amount of time you will have created something magical and extra special. This book is perfect for any level seamstress. .. from beginner to advanced. And it is well worth the value.
You just have to check this book out for yourself as I know my review probably does not do this book justice enough. Words can not express how wonderful this book is.
Happy Sewing and Have a Girl's World kind of day!
Smaller projects like the Chloe Paper Doll Overnight Bag were simple enough for my 9 year old to handle on her own.
I recommend this book for the novice to intermediate sewist. However, anyone who has a little girl that wants to step out in sweet style will want to add Girl's World to their pattern book collection.
