Sew cute and original clothes for your little angel with this easy-to-follow DIY sewing book.

Yoshiko Tsukiori's Japanese sewing books provide elegant casual designs for women and children and have made her one of the most popular names in the Japanese sew–it–yourself craze. In Sewing for Your Girls, Tsukiori has done it again, creating eight adorable and endlessly versatile new patterns for clothes that will delight every mother's budget—and suit every little girl's personal style and body type.

Tsukiori provides easy–to–follow instructions (in English) and shares the basic techniques for creating all the classic elements of little girls' clothes. Today's emerging legions of DIY mothers will discover how to make:
  • A round collared shirt or tunic
  • A classic smocked sundress
  • Overalls with plenty of pocket room
  • Draw-string pants that fit beautifully
  • A shawl-collared dress or top
  • A gathered neckline shirt, tunic, or dress
  • A pretty dress with shoulder ruffles
  • A raglan top or dress
Add ruffles or bows, add tiers or pockets, add sleeves or go sleeveless—each of these garments can be embellished in endless variations to create literally hundreds of different styles. Tsukiori also guides readers on how to select carefree, pretty, and inexpensive fabrics that girls will love to wear every day! Imagination and creativity are the keys to dressing girls stylishly on a budget, and Sewing for Your Girls makes it easy to mix and match the basic components so that each piece is as unique as it is beautiful.
