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