Book Description from Amazon:
Books by fabric designers are hot, sewing with knits is on the rise, and children's clothing and accessories are the most popular projects in the category. Combining all three of these with her fresh, signature style, Patty Young offers up a compelling collection of children's wear for her eager audience of blog followers and fans of her pattern and fabric designs.

In Sewing MODKID Style, you'll get 20 patterns that can be customized to fit toddlers (sizes 2T-5T) or girls (sizes 6-10). Embracing Patty's specialty of designing patterns with knit fabrics—which allow children to run, stretch, and play comfortably—the projects dress your girl with flair and style.
     -Extensive sewing and finishing techniques for knit fabrics
     -Styling tips are included throughout, such as how to wear leggings on their own or under a skirt and how
      to sew a dress that can double as a shirt
     -Showcasing Patty's colorful and wearable designs, projects are great for moms, gift givers, and knit fabric enthusiasts

If you're a beginning to intermediate sewer with a young girl in your life, you'll love the projects in Sewing MODKID Style.
