Master Pattern Included

Sewing for Toddlers has easy-to-follow sewing instructions with clear illustrations, time saving techniques and the most up-to-date sewing methods. All styles and creative ideas are shown throughout the book in full colour photographs.

With KWIK?SEW'S Sewing For Toddlers you can use the ideas in the book or combine them with your creativity for endless garment designs. In addition to the fun of sewing toddler's clothes, you will also save a great deal of money since at this age kids grow fast and are constantly growing out of their clothes.

A master pattern is included to create entire wardrobes for girls and boys such as: T-shirts, sweatshirts, pants, shorts, jumpsuits, dresses, skirts and over 40 variations. Some of the pattern pieces included on the master pattern are interchangeable so you can make many variations of the garments Also included are appliqués, tips and ideas to add a personal touch.

[KWIK SEW's Sewing for Toddlers Cover] The multi-sized master pattern is printed on durable white paper with colour coded lines for each size. The patterns are printed on both sides of the paper so we could include as many sizes and designs as possible. Trace the patterns using tracing paper or tracing cloth made of transparent pressed fibers.

All of the master pattern pieces include 1/4? (6 mm) seam allowances. This is the best seam allowance to use when sewing toddler clothes. You can use a regular sewing machine or a serger/overlock machine.

The master pattern includes sizes T1 to T4. Toddler sizing assumes that the toddler is wearing diapers. Patterns are made to fit specific body measurements with ease allowed for comfort and style. Before you trace the pattern, choose the size by comparing the toddler's measurements to the measurement chart. Choose the size closest to the height, then compare the chest, waist and hip measurements. If in-between sizes, choose the larger size. The book gives instruction for altering the patterns for the proper fit.

About the Author:

Kerstin Martensson, President of KWIK?SEW Pattern Company, Inc., is internationally known as a sewing expert. Born in Gothenburg, Sweden and educated in both Sweden and England where she specialized in clothing construction, pattern design and fashion.

Kerstin founded KWIK?SEW Pattern Company, Inc. in 1967 to make patterns for stretch fabric. Today KWIK?SEW sells over 850 patterns for all types of fabric. Kerstin Martensson has written many sewing instruction books.

[Kerstin Martensson Photograph] The company has grown world-wide with subsidiaries in Australia, Canada and New Zealand, plus dealers in many other countries.

This tremendous growth of KWIK?SEW is primarily because Kerstin adapted quick, labor saving sewing techniques from ready-to-wear manufacturers. Using these short-cuts, a home sewer could construct a professional finished garment in a fraction of the time it previously took.

Kerstin has traveled extensively throughout North America, Pacific Rim, and Europe lecturing on her techniques to make sewing faster, easier and more fun.

Encouraged by customers' overwhelming acceptance, Kerstin continues to bring the most up-to-date fashion and sewing techniques to the home sewer. The books are easy-to-follow, with step-by-step procedures, many illustrations and colour photography.
