i am relatively new to doll making and bought this book to add to my collection of similar books. there are plenty of beautiful colour photographs of a variety of dolls to inspire others within its pages. However, due to the scale of the dolls - which is quite a bit smaller than the 18 inch dolls i have been making, i found these much more fiddly to contend with. the clothing necessitates the use of dupioni silk for its fineness and drape qualities and i have found that almost impossible to find in the small quantities needed in the UK. i would recommend the book for its inspirational content alone though.

An excellent book, this has three patterns varying in difficulty with plenty of variations on each one. A book to follow or use as inspiration. This was a good book for helping me to make costumes.

This book is quite okay, but not amazing. My expectations were higher. There are beautiful colth patterns, but not so much patterns for dolls.
