I am so excited to share a new book with you, Sew Classic Clothes for Girls: 20 Girls’ Dresses, Outfits and Accessories from the Cottage Mama . I ordered this one before it came out and was so excited the day it came in the mail! I took it to Panera, enjoyed a bowl of soup and enjoyed flipping through it because it’s just a beautiful book. I shouldn’t have been so surprised it was amazing, because the Lindsday Wilkes is amazing, but I was just amazed because I feel like sewing books are often great but not totally beautiful.
I was more than happy when Lindsay asked me to join her book tour. Of course I’d love to share her book with you! I can honestly tell you that if you love to sew timeless clothes for girls you’ll love this book.
The clothes are pretty but I really love the instructions in this book. Full color and they don’t miss a step! Patterns come in sizes 12 months to 10 years.
The pages of the book are just as cute as her patterns, if you own one of those.
This book’s instructions are top notch and really set the bar high for all future authors! This isn’t a book with vague or missing instructions.
I’m having a difficult time deciding what to make first. I’m in love with the coat on the cover. It’s just darling. But I know that no matter what I pick I’m going to love it!

The Future of Sewing Books
Well, Lindsay has done it. All future books will be compared to this. It’s time for publishers to step it up and produce books with complete, quality instructions and gorgeous photography. Well done, Lindsay and team!
