Ishida (Sewing Happiness) presents competent guidance for the dedicated crafter, showing passion in the construction of each project in this new collection. Here, the photography, soothingly beautiful, depicts the projects in a way that helps readers understand the appearance of each piece. The book begins, however, with some inconsistencies: seam allowances shift from a half-inch to a quarter-inch to three-eighths of an inch. If the intention is to have multiple seam allowances, then it would have been helpful for each pattern to have featured a specific seam allowance.
VERDICT Despite this minor quibble, this a charming collection comprised of lovely fabric items ­crafters will enjoy gifting and creating.
