Sy barnens första garderob – fiffiga plagg för 1–5-åringar is the very long title of Sweden’s first sewing book for children's wear in decades, by Kina Larsson and Kerstin Hanson (Massolit 2015). In this step-by-step book you find sewing patterns for a complete children’s wardrobe, bringing to life classical and modern pieces such as the sailor’s shirt, a ballet dancer’s tutu, tights, the baseball cap and college sweater.
An ambitious and project combining private joys and professional skills. The love of fabrics, smart pattern constructions, endless nights of sewing, textile printing, mistakes turned into new solutions, photography sessions with reluctant kids, lettering, using one’s favourite typefaces and then the immense reward of this book being used over and over again.
All patterns are constructed by Kina Larsson.
Book design, lettering and drawings by Kerstin Hanson.
