A Pattern for Pepper
It’s time for Pepper to get her very first tailored dress, one that is just for her and perfect in every way. But Pepper can’t seem to find the right fabric. So Mr. Taylor takes Pepper on a journey of patterns from Scotland’s tartan and houndstooth to Switzerland’s softer side of dotted swiss; but they were either too loud, too dull, too plain, or too boring. Continuing to explore, Pepper quickly dismisses toile, pinstripes, and seersucker, but Mr. Taylor knows he will find the perfect one. And once they do, he quickly sketches, cuts, pins, and sews the fabric until Pepper has the perfect patterned dress for her special occasion.
Charming and unique, A Pattern For Pepper explores the world of textiles while sweeping readers back to the timeless craft of having clothes made and tailored specifically for them. While this might not be a practice that is common these days, it is still a beautiful family tradition that is explored through the eyes of a little girl. This little girl knows just what she wants, and the result is a beautiful exploration of fabrics. Adorable in every way, author and illustrator Julie Kraulis’s Pepper will stitch her way right into your heart.
