Kamille left a comment on one of my blog posts recently asking me about sewing books for toddler girls. Specifically for a 12 month old little girl. I have not sewn for anyone so little for years, since my baby just turned 5 (growing up way too quickly!)
I did buy a book recently for the range 80-100cm which is just about right for a 12month girl to maybe 2-3 years old? I actually bought the book by mistake as it was a book on Mama+child matching patterns which I wanted, and the girl on the cover looked about 4 or 5? I somehow failed to see the large purple circle on the cover that said 80-100cm. It also says M and L sizes for Mama.
I might be putting this book up for sale since the sizes don’t fit my girls. But I’m still half hearted about it since the Mama patterns are quite nice.
The book is by 朝井牧子 the lady behind the online shop enanna. The shop specializes in clothes for girls 80-110cm.
Just some of the patterns included in the book. The clothes for Mama + girl are thankfully not completely identical, but rather, runs along the same fabric theme,
or sharing the same shape, with different details and design elements.
A very nice jacket for Mama
and a matching hooded jacket for the girl.
There are two patterns that come with detailed step by step photos like the ones above.
I like how there is a scaled down diagram of the pattern sheet and the pieces you need is highlighted in blue. Really helps with locating the pattern pieces.
For the rest of the patterns without detailed photographs, there are colored diagrams like the ones above.
Actual size paper patterns included.

There are two other books written by the same author that I thought should be good for a toddler girl too since she seems to specialize in toddler patterns. I am using these images from Amazon.co.jp because I don’t have the actual books on hand. I have included the ISBN numbers and titles below each book so that it might help you with your search for the books online.
There are 18 projects (from A-R) for sizes 80-90cm.
