Philippa Casey on
I loved this book, bought when discovered I was pregnant with number five to help deal with shock and embrace another baby arriving! Includes pregnancy and breast feeding friendly clothes which I made, wore and recieved compliments on. I made gifts for friends from this book and to this day although lost the book in a house fire still make the reversible pants pattern for my little boy. Great inspiration to use fabric patterns and mix them all up GREAT BOOK!

another "pretty to look" at book. It's all about the fabrics used that gives the appeal and of course the profile of the author. As to content.. very disappointing for a quite expensive book..the items covered are either very basic or where they require a pattern this is not drafted properly, nor are the instructions clear.. most disappointed
