Publishers Weekly

"Song (Crease + Fold) clearly explains how to use origami to create tiny skirts, blouses, swimsuits, and fashion accessories just the right size for paper dolls, scrapbooks, or other methods of display. Each exercise opens with a quick rundown of the item’s history or use...followed by illustrated step-by-step directions for folding crop tops, rompers, high heels, sunglasses, and other objects. More than 40 removable sheets of origami paper—featuring animal prints, florals, and other vibrant designs—are included." - Publishers Weekly

Booklist - Sarah Hunter

"Origami lovers who are hoping for something more hip than paper sailboats, animals, and flowers will likely be delighted by Song’s fashion-focused offering. . . .Each design opens with an image of the finished product and some style tips, which can function both for composing a paper-doll-worthy origami outfit or for styling actual human-sized clothes. The designs range in difficulty, and some origami experience will likely be helpful, but even the toughest patterns are clearly explained in the illustrated step-by-step instructions, which include some tips on adjusting folds for tailoring. . . . .couture-minded kids will appreciate Song’s offbeat take on origami." - Booklist

Imagination Soup - Melissa Taylor

"We think this is the best origami book ever — the directions are very clear, the designs are amazing, and the oversized papers are gorgeous! My 11 year old already has used all the papers and made most of the designs. It’s a big hit in our house." - Imagination Soup

Imagination Soup - Melissa Taylor

"Artistic and crafty kids (and adults) can make origami art beyond animals and flowers with the incredible new book, Origami Chic: A Guide to Foldable Fashion by Sok Song. You’ll learn how to make tops, bottoms, dresses, shoes, handbags, and more. My 11-year old just can’t get enough! . . .The 30 projects are written in clear directions with helpful line drawings to illustrate each step. Each project is rated for difficulty — easy, medium, and challenging. So she got the hang of these creations without any trouble; each time improving upon the one before. . . .Folding origami is hours off of screen time, being creative and crafty. Win-win! I think this book would make a wonderful gift." - Imagination Soup
