Sew Classic Clothes for Girls: Book Release and Giveaway!

Sew Classic Clothes for Girls Video

My new book, “Sew Classic Clothes for Girls: 20 Girls’ Dresses, Outfits and Accessories from The Cottage Mama” is finally released and shipping! I have been talking about the book a lot over on Facebook, but I was waiting to do the official blog post until Amazon had started shipping the books. The official book release date was October 7, 2013 and I have been shipping books ordered directly from The Cottage Mama website for a couple weeks, but last week Amazon officially shipped out all the pre-orders. Yay!

For me, having written a book is about the biggest accomplishment I have achieved from a sewing career stand-point. It still doesn’t feel real. I’m sure the more people that buy the book and the more lovely creations I see from people using the patterns, it will all start to sink in fully, but for now I feel like I’m in a dream. A really good dream.

So what’s inside the book? The book has 17 garment patterns and 3 accessories in size 12 month – size 10. All of the patterns are contained on a disk in the back of the book in PDF form. You simply place the disk into your computer, select the garment you wish to make and print out that specific garment onto standard 8.5″ x 11″ pieces of paper. There are marks on each piece of paper that tell you where to tape the sheets of paper together. Then you cut out your pattern size. The taping of the paper takes about the same amount of time it would take you to trace a pattern, but it’s much easier.

Why do you have the patterns on a disk? The publisher and I chose to do this for many different reasons.

1) The most important reason was that I wanted this to be an extremely garment heavy book with a wide range of sizing without a lot of filler projects that didn’t require patterns. I also didn’t want to give you a ton of measurements, I wanted you to have the pattern pieces. There would have been absolutely no way to bind that many different pattern pieces into one book. That’s why you don’t see many books like this on the market.

2) Secondly, having a disk secured in the back of the book ensures that the pattern pieces are not going to fall out of the book (a common problem with many sewing books). What good is a pattern book without the patterns?

3) The book also takes up less space on your shelves and the shelves of book stores and quilt stores around the country.

4) And finally, having the disk allows you to print out your patterns time and time again, meaning you don’t have to trace your patterns and you can throw away the pattern after you’ve made a garment and simply print it out if you want to make it again…….no need to store those patterns if you don’t want to.

So having all the patterns on a disk may be something new to you, but I promise you that it’s very easy to use.

The book contains step-by-step full-color illustrations for each one of the garments. Not only do I give you my tips and tricks as you sew each garment, there is a large introductory section of the book where I show you all types of different techniques from making your own bias binding, using bias binding, creating custom piping, inserting piping, gathering techniques, how to make pintucks, using covered buttons and trims. I also write about pairing patterned fabrics and how to use those when creating unique, one-of-a-kind pieces for your little ones. In the back of the book I give you a full two pages of additional design ideas.

I am a very visual person, so I wanted to include many eye-candy and inspirational photographs throughout the book. My publisher allowed me to work with my friend, Amy Tripple of Amy Tripple Photography, who is a local Chicago-area photographer. It was wonderful because that meant I got to have my two sweet girls in the book and got to style and help with each and every photoshoot. The step-by-step technique shots were photographed in my studio and those are my hands in each shot. We had so much fun working on this book together and I think Amy really made the book come to life through her absolutely gorgeous photography.

  89. Awwww…. The dresses are so pretty. My entire pregnancy, I wished for a lovely daughter, so that i could dress her in lovely, pretty dresses. In 2010, just few mins before Valentine’s Day, i was blessed with a beautiful daughter. I didn’t know much stitching then. Just could stitch on a straight line, that’s it. Now i can barely manage to stitch a sleeveless tunic. Still need to learn to attach sleeves. So am looking for appropriate guidance to brush up my skills and learn a few new ones. Also looking for cute patterns to dress up my angel.
    Love Always…

  317. Patt Clancy says:

    I am so excited about your book!
    My precious Granddaughter, Rowan, always asks when I go to visit, “What did you make me Grandma Patt”
    This warms my heart.
    If something is ripped or torn she collects till I come, so I can fix it. (The dogs tend to make a somewhat productive pile)
    I like to send items every so often so she thinks of us back in Texas. So many great options in your book. Love it.
    Thank you for sharing your talents.

  318. Patt Clancy says:

    Sorry this Grandma forgot to tell you I shared on FB.

  325. My twin sister is the mastermind behind chickadee chickadee. While I swear Ashley stole all the sewing talent from the womb, she excites me about every dress and coat that she’s made from your patterns…and she’s convinced me I can do them because of how much time and care you’ve put into each design and instruction. So congrats on a fabulous job well done! Can’t wait to order one if I don’t win πŸ˜‰

  326. I will gladly pin it and would love to know what size the patterns go up to.
