Synopsis

The Fashion Designer's Handbook and Kit Learn to Sew and Become a Designer in 33 Fabulous Projects by Marjorie Galen

The No. 1 dream career for tween girls? Fashion designer, according to The New York Times . They love Project Runway, follow their favourite stars' clothing lines, and use clothes as a way to express themselves. And now, with The Fashion Designer's Handbook , girls ages 7 to 12 can learn everything they need to know to start designing clothes - and test their ideas by creating doll-size outfits. Combining a full-colour book with a starter set of tools and trimmings - a doll-size dress form, 27 patterns, ribbon, rickrack, and two swatches of fabric - it will inspire any girl to create a fabulously hip wardrobe to fit her fashion dolls, including Barbie. The 33 delightful, doll-size projects require little to no adult help. There's Martha's No-Sew Circle Dress, Mod Mini 1-2-3 Skirt, Cozy Lounge Pants, Little Red Cape, and more. Plus three life-size designs - a dress, a skirt, and a bag - for girls to make for themselves.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

LoveReading4Kids is a modern and creative way of emphasising the value and importance of books in this digital age #booksforlife

Amrit Bunet – Teen

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

Lorraine Woods

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

Judi Davies – Aberdare Girls Sch

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk
