making baby clothes by ROB MERRETT

I have fallen in love, truly I have. Let me introduce you to my new love "Making Baby Clothes" 25 Fun and Practical Projects for 0-3 Year Olds by Rob Merrett. This book is so addictive with those gorgeous and cool patterns for kids that I want to sew each and every project from this book. This book features some great projects like dungarees, hats, skirts, shirts, jackets, dresses to create these stylish and cute baby dresses by yourself.
The book has 6 chapters nicely divided by projects starting  for babies 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-9 months, 9-12 months, 2 Years and 6th chapter for 3 Years. There are also very detailed explanation on various techniques that can be used. Each project is very well explained along with clear instructions and pictures.
Pull-out patterns enclosed at the end of the book.

About the Author: Rob Merrett started his career as a fashion designer and has worked with many leading design studios, apparel brands and publications, pioneering trends and developing new design concepts. Rob specializes in trend forecasting for the colour, textile, fashion and interior industries, and also takes commissions as a stylist for food and lifestyle book publishers and magazines. His work has been featured in Mondo Uomo, Per Lei, WWD, International Textiles Magazine, Vogue Nippon, and British Elle, as well as in Essence of Linen (published by Ryland Peters and Small). Making Baby's Clothes is his third book for CICO, following the success of The Perfect Apron and the forthcoming Sew It, Stuff It.

Overall: Great Book
