"Girl's Guide to DIY Fashion" Book Review + Giveaway

I was excited to have my Sweet Girl look over this book and help me review it  - this book is actually perfect for girls of all ages!  I'm enjoying it as much as my 12 year old.




The author of "Girl's Guide to DIY Fashion" is Rachel Low, who owns Pins & Needles, a sewing studio for girls (around age 6-16,) in New York City. Kids come in for classes and leave an hour later with gloves and hats that they've sewed themselves.  I wish she had a studio closer to me  - this sounds like so much fun. 

This very informative book offers super easy directions for kids to learn to sew and to design 5 complete outfits.  There are even a few extra tutorials included like how to make things like sleep masks and purses and you'll find some no-sew projects as well.




I finally have my own sewing machine, got it for Christmas this year. Unfortunately it has been sitting around untouched for a little while.  My favorite projects are the ones I make with my kids and I am excited about pulling the sewing machine out for my Sweet Girl.  I was trying to figure out where to start when I glanced at the index.  This book is so well layed out.  The basics of sewing are covered first as well as a review of materials. So helpful for beginners like us. Then there is even a section titled, "How to use this Book."   Perfect!  There is a review of sewing words and some safety information as well. Everything is covered in this book from detailed instructions to step by step illustrations.  Sweet Girl and I are so ready to get started!!



Do you have a budding fashion designer in the house?  Or maybe just a creative girl looking to learn something new? You can order her this great book here.  Or you can enter my giveaway and win a copy.
