Book Description

Transforming pre-loved clothes into stylish, unique garments for your baby or toddler is great for the environment, great for your bank balance and, most of all, great fun!

In Restyle & Restitch for Little Ones, you will find 30 sewing projects for creating stylish baby clothes, from newborns to two-year-olds, including trousers, dresses, sweaters, mittens, rompers and socks. The projects are accompanied by colourful, full-size patterns to help you make the most of your repurposed clothing. 

You will discover how best to change the size of any of the patterns in the book to suit your own child's measurements, and how to choose the most appropriate clothing to use rather than convert, taking into account the young wearer's safety.

The projects are complemented by gorgeous photographs of the author's own children and their friends modelling the restyled outfits, and by Linnea's extra hints and tips for making the most of your well-worn items.

Customer Review

I'm keen to re-use and recycle, especially for clothing so this book instantly appealed to me. It has some lovely ideas and is suited to both the new and more experienced sewists using machine or hand stitching. There is a nice mix of clothing and accessories too, particularly liked the sleepsuit from an adult's t-shirt. Also has ideas for printing onto the fabric, so it's more than just take a t-shirt and make an item kind of thing. There are also patterns you can trace-off and guides for making from 0-2yrs old sizing. Pleased with the book and will definitely be trying out some of the ideas.
