My Review:  This book is for anyone who loves to sew and create.  The illustrations and photos are packed full of creative ideas and bright fun patterns. I love this book! Every project comes with clear, concise directions and there is something for all skill levels. Not only is there full-size patterns and templates for all the projects, but there is a comprehensive techniques section, which defines and explains it all. This is a great book to use to make those special gifts; matching holiday pajamas for the family, preppy plaid lounge pants for the males and extremely cheery sets for the kids. Oh, and don't forget the females in your life; a silky robe for Mom and comfy fleece 2-piece set for Sis. With over 21 fun and cute designs, there is something for everyone.  Just in case you don't sew, then this is a great gift for someone who does!


5 out of 5 stars!

Publisher's Review: For those out there who love to look their best at all times, The Perfect Pajama is here! There are 25 brilliant pajamas and beautiful accessories to make, so if you don't like dressing down to go to bed, glam up in designs that are more Dior than bedroom bore. If you love that classic look, there are stylish pinstripes and checked pieces to make, each with a modern twist. The projects use a whole range of gorgeous fabrics, too, including traditional flannel, antigue lace, eye-catching polka dots, pretty ric-rac, and more. There are fun designs for both adults and children, and there's even an eye mask, Moroccan slippers, and a hot water bottle cover to make: everything you need for the perfect night's sleep. Every project comes complete with clear step-by-step instructions, plus trendy, retro-inspired artworks to make sure you don't miss a stitch. Also included are full-size patterns and templates, plus a comprehensive techniques section, explaining everything you'll need to know.

Buy this book (It will make a great gift!): Amazon
