I have had this wonderful book for over 3 years and it is full of ideas, patterns and embellishments for porcelain dolls of all kinds. It is a treasure chest in bookform for dollmakers. It is also a beautiful coffee table book that interests my guests.

This book contains photos of dolls in original clothing, patterns for making doll clothes, and very detailed sewing instructions. The patterns range in size for small dolls (15 inches) to larger dolls at 22 inches. There are lots of diagrams and illustrations to aid in the sewing of the garments. The patterns would be simple enough to copy on a home printer to reproduce the garments. Since I have not had time to sew any of the projects listed I can't tell you how the finished product turns out. I bought this primarily as a resource for china head dolls.
