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.
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.
One big plus is the patterns are already printed in their actual size. No need to enlarge.
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.
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.
Highly recommended. Easy to follow instructions.

There's almost no patterns for boys and the ones offered are not good at all.
Even the romper is complicated for no reasons and I am an expert sewer. Read more
