I have a super fun book review for you today crocheters!   I was recently able to check out Kids Dress Up by Cathy Hardy (ISBN: 978-1-4647-6700-5, Leisure Arts).

Kids Dress Up is a fun book that includes a collection of five dress up sets that allow children to dress up as animals, ballerina, princess, scary monster, or super hero!

Most of the designs in the book are given in two sizes, for ages 3-5 and 5-8.  In fact for easy stitching, the book designates the 3-5 (small) size in blue and the 5-8 (medium) size is color coded in pink.

Every project in the book is beautifully photographed in full color and includes multiple angles of each piece, as well as close ups of special stitches or edgings.

Each pattern contains a  shopping list, gauge information, complete sizing information, and a clear, easy to read written pattern.  Need help finding a particular yarn?  Be sure to check out the "Yarn Information" section on the last page that includes specific brands and what colors were used...so helpful!

Need a little extra help?  Be sure to check out the back of the book for additional tutorials on joining, changing colors, whipstitch seaming, plus the basic stitches and other techniques used throughout the book.

  1. The tiara for the princess is really cute, but I'm going with the Scary Monster. Because … When I first saw it I thought it was a sort of Post-Neo-Modern-Abstract-Expressionist Carrot. I'm really not the sharpest Buick in the crayon cave, am I?
