Sew Fab is a style and sewing workbook for any girl aged 8 to 13 who loves fashion. It will teach you not just to sew, but how to wear your creations with flair.

Start by finding your style tribe, learning to accessorize, identifying the best colours for you and more. Now get ready to sew. Make yourself a mini studio, stock your sewing basket and try out some hand stitching. Finally, make some art to wear. There's a mix of easy step-by-step projects to sew by hand or using simple machining, from a hair bow to a little black dress (but in the colour that suits you best!).

Packed with gorgeous illustrations, step-by-step projects, tips and fun activities, you will be creating unique clothes and accessories in no time.
