Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
11/01/2013
Thanks to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (better known to tabloid readers as Will and Kate), royal baby mania is everywhere. This collection of sewing patterns features vintage-inspired garments and accessories for special occasions in children's lives, such as christenings, formal parties, and weddings. The materials are luxe—lace, silk, and fine cotton—and the old-fashioned techniques (smocking, hand embroidery) add character and appeal. The main focus is on christening gear, including booties, bonnets, and gowns, but there are also formal outfits for boys and girls (a sailor suit-style onesie and a charming dress with a Peter Pan collar). Printable patterns are included on a CD-ROM; most of the designs are sized for infants and toddlers. VERDICT These aren't clothes designed for your average playdate, but crafty parents seeking patterns for formal children's wear will be enchanted by the genteel, traditional garments in this book.
