Mixed feelings on this book: on the plus side, it has beautiful photography, the clothes are gorgeous in an Enid Blyton-esque way, and there are plenty of patterns for boys (not just pyjamas, but shirts and shorts as well). On the other hand, the instructions are brief to the point of unhelpfulness, and the computer printouts of the pattern pieces don't give any indication of scaling, so construction from this book is a hit and miss affair. On balance, possibly more of a coffee table book that a useful resource for making childrens' clothes? Having said that, if you are prepared to use the patterns as a basis for making your own adjustments, and to tweak the construction methods a bit, you could build a whole wardrobe from this book - it would just take some time and resourcefulness!
