A Sunny Spot is a must have book if you have daughters or granddaughters! In Japanese, the book title actually translates to Everyday
Clothes for Girls
. The garments are casual and relaxed enough to wear as play clothes and to wear to school. Some
outfits can also be dressed up to wear on a stylish day out.


This beautifully photographed book gives you lots of styling ideas for the garments you can make.

Pattern D, Daily Dress with Round Collar is really adorable on its own, but I love how it looks paired with a pair of jeans. Makes it much more suitable for little girls who like to run around!

The sewing process for Pattern D is included in the book as a step-by-step tutorial. The photos help you to understand the more complicated steps.

Design D - Peter Pan Collar Dress

Pattern F, Camisole and Pants looks like a romper when worn together. How clever!

Design F - Romper

Pattern O, Border Knit Coat is a little bit grown-up, but I think it would be a great piece to get through the cooler days in spring and fall. A sewing pattern for the detachable fur collar is also included in this book.

Design O - Coat


No wonder this book is a best seller in Japan. It’s not only beautiful to look at, but the sewing patterns produce practical, but unique clothes for little girls. You can check
