Best Ever Kids Costumes is a charming collection of costumes to capture the imagination. From a sword-wielding pirate and pretty-in-pink fairy to a hip-hop Easter bunny and an ‘out of this world’ astronaut, the projects are perfect for afternoon dress-ups with friends.

Each project is accompanied by colour photography, easy-to-follow instructions and illustrations. PatternMaker CD (which runs on Windows 95/98/NT/2000/ME/XP) combines easy-to-use pattern drafting software with ready-made computerised pattern collections. A simple step-by-step pattern wizard asks you to select the costume you want, and the computer draws the pattern for you – in the perfect size and fit!

Basic skills are all that’s required to create these wonderful designs. All techniques are clearly explained and a skills section can be found at the front of the book. Whatever the occasion, get stitching and create the best costume in the room. (35,000 words)
