Miss P and I LOVE Mary Abreu's book, Modern Style for Girls. The book includes basic patterns for bodice, pants and skirts that are just right for preteen girls. Each of the three chapters focuses on one of the patterns and its variations. The different styles for each basic pattern allow you to be your own designer. After reading through the different adaptations of each garment you get to know how the parts go together and gain confidence to make your own adjustments and try your own styling. The patterns are not complicated and work well for a confident beginning sewer.
P enjoyed looking through the book and chose several garments from the book that she'd like. First up were the pedal pushers featured on the cover.
I know we will be making more garments from this book! Next up for Miss P is the Kicky Pleated Skirt.
