Here Yoshiko Tsukiori turns her attention to clothes for little girls. She offers a complete wardrobe of 28 pieces from smart dresses to smocks, trousers and even a parka. Also included are a cute cap, clasp purse and drawstring bag, which are bound to delight their owners.
She doesn t neglect the details – bows, pin tucks, patch pockets and lace edging make gorgeous extras. As children s clothes should be, these designs are comfortable and practical to wear as well as pleasing to look at.
The designs are based on unfussy shapes, straightforward sewing techniques and a minimum of pattern pieces, making them easily adaptable for use with different fabrics or in longer or shorter lengths. Comprehensive instructions, with step-by-step diagrams, are included, together with a full-scale paper pattern in five sizes (covering roughly ages 3 to 10).
