KIRKUS REVIEW

A successor to Sewing The Easy Way again redirects the modern mother to an old-fashioned skill, emphasizes that you can dress your children for about a third the cost of good store-bought clothes, but suggests that you consider first what is best worth the time and effort. After determining the size (how to measure, etc.) and pattern, choosing the fabric, considering figure problems, this gives extensive directions on how to make coats, dresses- that grow with the girl, teen-age clothes and formals, and the re-use of the ""treasures"" in your attic. While primarily concerned with girls' clothes, the same guidance applies for boys' (sports jackets, etc.) and there is explicit information on seams, types of stitches, buttonholes, linings, zippers, trims, pockets, collars, sleeves, etc. There is probably a waiting and willing market.
