The Girl's Guide is such an outstanding resource for the creative girls in your life. Written with 7- to 14-year-olds in mind, Rachel has written a self-contained, everything-you-need-to-know handbook to inspire and motivate girls to design and sew clothes and accessories. All the technical stuff is there - terminology, how to read a pattern, sewing machines basics. We love the exercises on finding your creative style (mood board guidelines, too). Five sections of projects have girls sewing clothing and creating new looks with accessories The painted tights are fantastic! The chapters range from Back to School to Slumber Party to Rockin' Summer. Fun with Friends builds an outfit around custom jeggings and an applique sweatshirt. This is the perfect primer for the girls who long to stitch.
