One note on modesty with some of the girls' sleeveless tops and dresses. The surplice sundress, although lovely, is too low-cut, in my opinion, so I would either shorten the straps or make the bodice a little bit longer. As with any garment, you can try the garment on the child as you knit it, if possible, and adjust as needed.
The photographs in this book are beautiful, and show off the garment well, and the patterns look well-written. Another fun touch is that the patterns are named for characters in children's literature, such as Ramona, Hermione and Caddie! All in all, I am very satisfied with this find and can't wait to get started!
I have to admit that I have bought the yarn for a couple of projects already, so I am patiently knitting on my 2 projects until I can get to one of these projects from More Knitting in the Sun!
Happy crafting to all!
