Crafty kids love to show off what they make, and what better way to do that than to wear their own one-of-a-kind handmade clothes! The authors of the best-selling and much-acclaimed Sewing School® series are back with a complete course in making your own clothes, specially designed for kids aged 8 to 12.

Starting with the basics, Sewing School® Fashion Design teaches kids how to make three essential garments: a top, a pair of shorts, and a skirt, and then encourages building their skills and customizing each piece with options for changing the neckline or sleeve length and adding their own decorative touches. With step-by-step photos, and actual kid-created examples, the approach is friendly and forgiving — no fussy fitting or difficult techniques. All the necessary pattern pieces are included for a wide range of sizes and body types, along with guidance on selecting fabric, cutting accurately, and adjusting the fit. With a wardrobe of their own making, kids will feel great about what they wear!
