In this 134-page special issue, you will find classic summer garments for babies and children. Each design is made with something extra special – a touch of hand embroidery, a panel of smocking, a row of rickrack flowers – techniques and surface effects that pour the love into heirloom sewing.
This special issue is filled with more than 40 summer sewing ideas with 5 full-sized patterns! In All About Baby you will find darling rompers, diaper sets and special techniques worked on airy fabrics that keep baby cool all summer. The Smocking Sweetly section features smocked designs in full blossom. From a simply beautiful bishop with a cross of bullion roses to can-do tips for perfect, stacked cables for picture smocking, you are sure to sharpen you skills. The Kissed by the Sun section includes sundresses and halters paired with cute cropped pants for girls of all ages. These looks are perfectly styled for summer vacations and easy to toss on for sailing comfortably through hot summer days. And, the Vintage Remakes section is inspired by yesteryear. It’s our favorite way to sew – to take beautiful pieces or techniques from days gone by and use our tools and technology to rework them for today’s sewing enthusiast.
