Children's clothes

Mariko Nakamuro has been designing clothes since she was ten years old. She drew designs and  her mother would  take her shopping for fabric to make the outfits. Not a surprise then that Mariko went on to study fashion design in Tokyo.Girl's skirt

The designs in this book were originally created for Mariko’s own children. They are essentially simple, easy to make, and easy to wear. Garments that children will be comfortable in. The shapes are all loose fitting so movement isn’t restricted. easy to wear

The fabrics are practical and can be laundered over and over again. Many of the pieces can be worn with others from the collection. The book is divided into two, spring-summer and autumn-winter with collections for both boys and girls. Each garment has its own full scale pattern in four sizes. This  is not a book for complete beginners, but the patterns are not too  complicated and the designs are lovely.with sleeves
