The Fashion Designers Handbook and Fashion Kit Paperback / softback
The No. 1 dream career for tween girls? Fashion designer, according to "The New York Times".
They love Project Runway, follow their favourite stars' clothing lines, and use clothes as a way to express themselves. And now, with "The Fashion Designer's Handbook", girls ages 7 to 12 can learn everything they need to know to start designing clothes - and test their ideas by creating doll-size outfits.
Combining a full-colour book with a starter set of tools and trimmings - a doll-size dress form, 27 patterns, ribbon, rickrack, and two swatches of fabric - it will inspire any girl to create a fabulously hip wardrobe to fit her fashion dolls, including Barbie.
The 33 delightful, doll-size projects require little to no adult help.
There's Martha's No-Sew Circle Dress, Mod Mini 1-2-3 Skirt, Cozy Lounge Pants, Little Red Cape, and more.
Plus three life-size designs - a dress, a skirt, and a bag - for girls to make for themselves.
