Little Girls Big Style... Review!

I guess most, if not all of you are aware of this blog, Conefession of a craft addict... But just in case you are not... go there! Have a look!
So when I understood Mary Abreu is having a book... I waited... and it arrived last week!
You can see some of the outfits from the book in its flickr page !

About the book
so pretty! great photos.. great inspiration! I can see my girls wearing any item in this book, and feeling special! There are only four basic patterns, but endless variations! All patterns are made of woven fabric, which is great also!
The paper is made of a very high quality! I think the patterns are simple, very easy, and so the book is very good for beginners, that want to sew for the little girls in their lives very quickly and with great results!

So this weekend I pushed aside some other tasks... and I started! The first thing was the basic top and ruffled pants outfit. I made it in just a few hours... very easy!
I madeit for my 7 years old. I traced size 6, and added seam allowance as I was sure (I didn't even check...) that size 6 will be too small.
I ended up with a cute set, a bit too wide for my girl, but that's OK, because in the coming winter she'll have to wear a top under the set, and in summer after that, this outfit will probably fit just great!
The pictures were taken at home... not the best place, but I really didn't want to wait...
So here it comes...

well, I still have two more items that need to completed soon, and then I promised my little one a dress from this book!
so... until next time! :-)


  1. Love the combo of the red with black - very smart.
    This book is on my Santa list this year!

  2. Michal, thank you so much for the sweet words about my book! I love the outfit, too. I hope you and your girls continue to enjoy it!

  3. The outfit turned out lovely! Hop over to the Sisboom blog! You won the Carla pattern giveaway! Woo hoo! I cannot wait to see what you pick and make! Carla's patterns are awesome I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
