Review

“…this book has us positively gushing! It’s well organized with projects grouped by event. …The Go-To chapter covers so many sewing basics–how to use a pattern, sewing seams, pressing, sewing curves and corners. Detailed photos greet you with every step, including using contrasting thread in projects, which is fantastic for us visual learners.” -Gen Q Magazine; July/August Issue 2014

“Sew in Style-Make Your Own Doll Clothes was written to teach girls to sew for their own 18″ dolls, and it does a beautiful job of doing just that. … My favorite thing about this book is that I just handed it all over to Samantha and let her go with it. The beginning of the book teaches basic sewing skills with plenty of tips and guidance.” -Bonnie of Fishsticks Designs; 7/25/14

” I love how Erin “speaks” to her readers. She gives great instructions, has lots of tips and tricks and an extensive glossary to help out younger sewists. …There is also an ENTIRE chapter devoted to recommended sewing supplies, information about different kids of fabric and simple sewing techniques… so it’s a great book to pick up for a beginning sewist.” -Melissa Mortenson of Polka Dot Chair; 7/24/14

“This is a wonderful book for kids learning to sew. …The pictures illustrate each step of the way perfectly.

Erin, the author, must really know the heart of the person who wants to start sewing but doesn’t know how, because she takes you through the process from the very beginning and explains everything a person needs to know to buy and work with fabric to make a complete project.

The projects in this book are adorable and creative! It is a great book to spark the imagination of young girls and to give them endless hours of fun projects to make.”
-Sue Pfau of Sweet Jane’s Quilting; 7/18/14

“I can strongly recommend Sew In Style: Make Your Own Doll Clothes. I am always a big fan of C&T books, but books under the company’s FunStitch Studios imprint have many, many how-to photos to help young sewists. And that is the case with each of the 22 projects in this book. I think working on small projects such as doll clothes helps build sewing skills while not using a ton of fabric or taking a lot of time to complete. It’s a win-win in my book!” -Gen Q Magazine Blog; 7/26/14
