Reviews

The book is so well written, not that I would expect anything less from Liesl and Oliver + S, but I feel it will become a very valuable tool in any sewing library whether you sew for a little girl or yourself. Britney Laidlaw, blogger, Sewing for Four (Plus One!)"
You can tell there has been a lot of love poured into this book! It s very well thought out and organized. Julie Morin, Director, Kids Clothes Week"
I think it s such a great way to really take control of the design and make something truly unique and something your child will wear! Anna Graham, designer, author, and blogger, Noodlehead"
Even though I have now made more than a few garments, I consider myself a novice garment maker. With every new piece, I learn more about construction, fabric types, needles, drape, and ease. The Building Block Dress book takes my learning to a new level. Sandi Hazlewood, host of the Crafty Planner Podcast and columnist for Love Patchwork & Quilting magazine"
A book that instead of having a limited number of projects allows you as a designer to be able to alter and develop your own ideas. Best of all, thedesign alterations can beused with anysewing block, independent of size. Rachel Pinheiro, blogger, House of Pinheiro"
I think the book is great and something really different as you can make whatever you want of it depending on your skill level. The other great thing about the book is that you can use the pattern adaption concepts on adult patterns and for knit fabrics too! Lauren Guthrie, Finalist Great British Sewing Bee Season 1 and founder, Guthrie & Ghani"
I'm super proud that I made this dress. I love that I sewed a bias neckline. I love that I shortened the bodice and skirt of the dress without fear. I love that my dress is unique, and is a mish-mash of many different techniques in the book. I think it looks adorable and I can't wait to plan out my next Building Block Dress. Elizabeth Dackson, designer, author, Craftsy quilting instructor, and blogger, Don t Call Me Betsy"
