Video Review A couple of things to note about my video review:1. I did a video review to give others a better look inside the book.2. Please read some of the other reviews. There are much better seamstresses than me who left very detailed comments.3. I did not realize that this book came with 10 patterns, until I received it. This is a tremendous value $$.Really, a great book, just short on boys inspiration. Overall this makes a great reference book. ENJOY!

Finally here and well worth the money I’ve been waiting for this book to come out since Nancy first mentioned it on her blog. As a devotee of Farbenmix and Studio Tantrum patterns, I knew that this book was going to be something that I wanted. I prefer these patterns for several reasons: they have great fit with growing room; the designs are easily adapted to be simply made or given the full-on embellishment treatment; the designers seem to think “outside the box” when creating their patterns, resulting in garments that are dynamic in motion and fit beautifully with an original twist.I really like this book, it does have its drawbacks (as any book does), so I’ll list the Pros and Cons as I see them in order to give a balanced review.PROS:-10 multi-sized patterns, 3 or 4 of which are not available as separate patterns and some which are being discontinued for the cost of 1 or 2 if purchased individually. You can’t beat that deal.-colorful, inspiring photos with both close-up and…

Unlike some of the other reviewers, I happen to love the busy prints and whimsical stylings that are the hallmark of Farbenmix patterns. There is lots of ruching, gathers, and trims for lots of texture and visual interest, but you can also make toned down versions of their patterns which are very stylish and wearable as well. The book has lots of really amazing full-color illustrations and from the looks of it, the directions (and accompanying drawings) are much more comprehensive than what you get with the regular Farbenmix patterns. I have never had problems with the patterns before, but I’ve seen people lamenting their lack of clarity, so this seems like it would be a big improvement for beginning sewists, especially.The only thing I’m not liking (and it’s relatively minor) is that the…
