The best-selling Sewing School series takes to the runway with photographic step-by-step instructions and patterns that enable budding fashion designers ages 8 to 12 to make their own tops, shorts, and skirts, with a wide range of sizes and style options to choose from. 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 ages 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! AUTHORS: Amie Petronis Plumley is coauthor of Sewing School, Sewing School 2, and Sewing School Quilts.
