I would like to gift my Sewing Aunt a book with patterns for children's clothing because this is what she makes the most.

Actually, I need recommendations for either that or an inspirational smocking book, I haven't really decided yet.

(preferably on Amazon, if possible, I'm outside the US and have serious CC problems some times and no Paypal)

Which are your favorites in these categories? Thank you in advance.

PS My SA knows how to draft so that is not an obstacle, btw.

Maybe you could purchase a few issues of OTTOBRE Design magazine for her. I've never used the patterns myself, but the magazine has a great reputation and features modern designs for girls and boys in a variety of sizes. You can find issues to buy online pretty easily.

Is your sewing aunt by any chance also a francophone? If so, several of Yuki Araki's books have been translated into French (including "Petites filles modèles" and "Mademoiselle"). These books are filled with basic shapes that are perfect for adding creative details or for showing off nice fabrics. I also own Astrid Le Provost's "Intemporels pour bébés" and "Intemporels pour enfants", which I use pretty often. The garments are very classic, though, so if your sewing aunt already has a sizeable collection of children's patterns, I doubt there would be anything new for her here. I recently spotted another book in the shops: "Irrésistible à coudre 4 à 8 ans" by Laurence Mériat. I don't own this title and am basing my opinion only on flipping through the pages at the bookshop, but the patterns were presented quite nicely.

I'm sure you'll recieve plenty of ideas here and I'm looking forward to learning about some new books myself!

Ottobre is a great choice. You can pick the months you want on their website. They have a PDF of their designs for each month. Remember that they are based in Finland and their clothing tends to be for cold weather climates. They do have winter under garments that would work as outer wear in a warm climate. Ottobre website

There's an older book from Australia that has lots of children's clothing designs. Of course the styles are older too, but she shows how to draft every variation.
If you're interested in something like this, I'll try to find mine or the info on it. Or maybe some Australian knows it?
