Full of unhemmed edges, ruffles, buttons, and lace - and above all, personality - the garments presented in this book offer whimsical charm and practical playfulness. From simple dresses with ruffled sleeves to blouses with lace and pants with legwarmers, all of the clothes in this book are of simple construction, yet full of romantic details. Intended for girls ages 4 to 7, each garment is presented in four sizes so readers can find the perfect fit for their own little girl. Carefree Clothes for Girls is full of beautiful full-color photographs that reflect the distinctive Japanese craft book style. Each garment is modelled by a charming red-headed girl in natural settings, creating a feeling that is both playful and organic in style. Each project comes with clear, step-by-step instructions and detailed diagrams - perfect for the strong beginner and intermediate sewer. Full-size patterns are included with the book and as individual downloads online at makegoodbooks.com.
