sewing for kids

This month we invited two very special little ladies to our photo shoot; our Digital Editor Zoe's daughter (Eve) and my very own mini-me (Bea). We had such a blast! The studio was full of giggles, dancing and clapping whilst Eve expertly modelled our Kitty Pinafore (p66) and Bea ran around in her hooded bath towel (p70). Do you like sewing for children? If so, what do you make: dressing-up outfits, everyday clothes, soft toys or accessories? I'd love to hear from you. Email me at simplysewing@immediate.co.uk…

Fashion designer, author and entrepreneur Francesca Sterlacci has been in the business for over 30 years, from launching her own label in 1980, to teaching at the prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. Most recently, she has revolutionised the way fashion is taught with her unique learning platform, www.universityoffashion.com,which offers online classes teaching every facet of fashion design and business, from pattern-making to product development.
