Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"[...] you have to get this book!" —JapaneseSewingBooks.com

"Each pattern includes instructions, cutting diagrams, and illustrations "[...] the diagrams are super helpful." —Sweeter Than Cupcakes

Library Journal
In the second of her popular books to be translated into English, Japanese designer Tsukitori (Stylish Dress Book) brings her romantic style to clothing for girls age four to ten. Sewists who are accustomed to Japanese sewing books will find the layout of this title familiar. The first section resembles a beautifully photographed catalog of girls' clothing, while the second features step-by-step directions for assembling each garment. There isn't a lot of detail to the instructions; intermediate-level garment sewing knowledge is assumed. VERDICT The use of smocking, embellishment, and ruffles make these the kind of clothes that girly-girls love to wear, but these garments are suitable for play as well. American sewists will be glad to see another of Tsukitori's books available in English.
