Wild Things to Sew and Wear is a collection of 15 animal-inspired designs that are as fun to make as they are to wear – simple, bold and playful clothes and accessories that children of all ages won’ t want to take off.
A comprehensive techniques section shows you how to lay out pattern pieces on the fabric, transfer markings, and cut with confidence. The easy-to-follow patterns suit all levels, from beginner to advanced, and include a range of sizes, including matching designs for adults.
Creating clothing which inspires play, author Molly Goodall uses classic tailoring techniques mixed with contemporary styling – the perfect projects for imaginative crafters looking for something unique.
Molly Goodall is a designer with a background in childrenswear, toy design and fine art; she holds a BFA in Fashion Design from Parsons the New School for Design. Frustrated when her two-year-old refused to wear the hoods on his coats, she began to design and sew animal coats to inspire him to put on his hood in the cold. This led to the 2010 launch of her whimsical kids clothing range, Little Goodall, and ladies range Mrs Goodall. Molly lives in Texas with her husband and son.
