I want to love this book 8 janvier 2012
Par Carly Rogers - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Couverture à spirales
I really, really want to love this book. I have a little boy that I sew for quite a bit. I would say I am an intermediate sewer. I've sewn a dozen boy articles of clothing from various patterns. I have yet to finish one of these patterns in this book. I've attempted three and wind up really frustrated & ready to burn the book (just kidding... sort of). The clothes are cute, but the patterns are really hard to follow. And oftentimes the instructions are written wrong and I don't realize it until after I've sewn it together exactly like the book says. Then I have to rip it apart, figure out the correct way, and then re-sew. I've had my sister look at the book with me too - she's a much more experienced sewer - and she had the exact same problem. So, I would love to be able to use this book, but right now I feel like it was a waste of the $20 I spent on it.

Excellent patterns! 14 septembre 2011
Par Sally - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Couverture à spirales
This is long overdue! As the mother of two boys and long time sewist, I have looked for a long time for cute, innovative, interesting, modern clothes to sew for boys. This book absolutely fits the bill! The patterns are clever and cute, with interesting details so the clothes don't just look like the boring stuff boys usually get. At the same time, the clothes are simple enough that it's easy to whip up the patterns! (Unlike awesome clothes for boys that take so long to sew that my boys have outgrown them before I'm done!)
I have sewn up the raglan sleeve t-shirts, the kickin' back sweats, the on-the-town jacket, little heartbreaker pants, sweatshirt (pauley's pullover), the treasure pocket pants, and the belt. Let me tell you, these patterns are AWESOME!

Great concept, disappointing execution. 20 janvier 2012
Par Dellie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Couverture à spirales
I was excited to get this book, and think the pictures look great. Like one of the authors, I also have a boy with sensitive skin so sewing with seams on the outside for softness really appeals to me.

Having said that, I have made 3 items from the book and they have all been extremely ill-fitting. My boy is almost 3 and is the perfect waist and chest measurement for this size according to the book, however the sleeves in the tops I made him were easily 4-5 inches too long, while the length of the top is way too short. It is also far too snug if not using a stretch fabric (and these were not suggested)

I also made the hat, and had to recut the crown 3 times (eventually in the 6-7yr size) to match up with the 2-3 year size brim.

Instructions are not overly clear, but I am quite an experienced sewer so could muddle through. Hopefully if there is another edition of this book they will get the sizing right.

Sizing is Terrible! 11 février 2013
Par bslayers - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Couverture à spirales
My 2 year old son is wearing the 4 - 5 year old size of the Raglan shirt.. The Easy Linen shirt in a size 2 - 3 barely fits him. He is not a big kid for his age whatsoever. The pockets on the Two-in-one jacket are WAY off. Kids don't want to reach to the side of their hips to put there hands in. I've had to rip out several neck bands because their sizes are too small. Many of the patterns just seem "off" to me. It's disappointing because there are not many books out there for boy's clothing.

Good idea, poor execution 2 juillet 2014
Par Elena - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Couverture à spirales
I was so excited when I bought this book. Finally I can sew so many cool outfits for my son!..
But when I looked at the designs, I was slightly disappointed. I guess I was expecting to see more basic items with a possibility to customize them. Something like Kwik Sew's Sewing for Baby, but in today's style and for bigger age. But most of the items in the book are already pretty custom, and not to my taste. At the time that I got the book my son was three months old, and there is just a few items for that age in the book. I tried to make him pants, but they were too baggy and short. I thought that I'll just wait till he is older to fully use this book.

Now he is two, and I decided to make the shirt for him. As I already stated, I would be happier to see just a usual shirt pattern, but the book has pretty unique design for the shirt. Oh well, I decided to make it anyway.
Pattern itself seems to be drafted by hand (side part of the shirt has a strange "notch", I don't know how to explain it, but it is not shown on drawings in the tutorial, and it makes no sense). So there is no surprise that the shirt turned out completely messed up in sizing. I stopped sewing after assembling the main parts, but I don't think that attaching a collar would help in any way... The shirt is twice as wide as needed, but the length is ok. I can't even imagine a 2-year-old with such proportions to wear this shirt, it's just awful. I also tried other patterns from this book: the raglan tee, little heartbreaker pants and shorts, and they all needed some modifications in sizing, they were too wide.
Unfortunately, sizing is not the only problem of the book. It's sometimes hard to follow directions, because they are so unnecessarily complicated. There are some drawings that are supposed to help, but I didn't find them helpful at all. For the parts that I could understand only after reading them 5 times - there were no drawings, and for pretty clear instructions that don't need any additional explanations - there were drawings!
Some things explained completely wrong. I have some experience in sewing clothes, I've been using commercial sewing patterns, which usually have pretty clear instructions. And I was shocked when after 5 times reading through an instruction of how to attach a closure strip I started doing exactly as it was explained, and found out that it's in fact just the ordinary bias binding attachment, but turned to the opposite side! Whaaat? I had to rip it all apart and sew it as I usually do, which is just the opposite to what the book said. And I had a nice closure on the RIGHT side of the garment, not on the WRONG side.
The book has a lot of pretty photos, but it seems more like a family photo album to me. For example, there are photos featuring two items, but only one of them is in focus. So for some items there are two almost identical photo-pages. At first I was wondering, why? But then I got it: one picture has one item in focus (while the other is hardly seen because the boy wearing it has his arms crossed and covering the whole thing), and the other picture has another item in focus. Why not use different photo lens, that would have both items in focus on one picture? I don't know. There is almost not a single shot from the back. Not for the shirts, not for the jackets, not for the pajamas. And you won't find out how Little Heartbreakers Pants look at the waistline or from the back, unless you make them.

So... I don't even want to love that book anymore, I'm just sad that I wasted my time and my fabric and my nerves... And ended up using self-drafted patterns.
