A French Fashion Doll's Wardrobe

In this book, highly recognized doll costumer Louise Hedrick offers a collection of 56 patterns, authentically adapted from those presented in La Poupée Modèle between 1864 and 1874, for creating an entire wardrobe to fit both the classic 18-inch and 12-inch dolls of the period, and today s popular 18-inch and 12-inch reproduction French fashion dolls. From whitework undergarments and nightwear to dresses, headwear and outerwear, the 28 ensembles in this book encompass a complete wardrobe for a fashionable doll. By making slight variations in the patterns, fabrics and trims, a seamstress can enlarge this comprehensive wardrobe even further.

Excellent for the history - fashions and patterns. Mother won't give it back so I'll have to order another soon. The patterns and decorative design graphics are very well done. The Photographs are so clear and beautiful. It's a wonderful book.

Really nice historical costumes. Several to choose from and make for 12 and 18 inch fashion dolls.If I have any complaints it would be I wish that it covered 20 years of fashion starting with 1854.

I ordered this book as I waited for a 12" Alice Leverett French Fashion doll. I looked at the book so many times as I waited for the doll. Now I have actually used the patterns and they and the instructions are wonderful. The 12" patterns fit my A. L. doll perfectly but both the 12" and 18" patterns (both sizes are included!) are also meant for the wonderful antique French Fashion dolls and instructions for altering are clear too.

Let's just say I can't wait to get started. Louise Hedrick brought to this book everything I'd hoped for and more. The finished projects are gorgeous and inspiring, the patterns are well-drawn, and I love how authentic everything looks. Quality, quality, quality.

I have search for a copy of this book I could afford and now thanks to I have it. This book is highly regarded in the world of reproduction dolls for its pages full of clothes for these beautiful dolls. I have just started this hobby and find this book invaluable for sewing these victorian doll clothes. Great book for any doll enthuist.

Great book, full of information and period wardrobe patterns for French Fashion Dolls. If you sew for french fashion dolls, or just admire them, this is a great book for you. I love mine. Sharon

No matter where you are in your doll collecting this book is a nice addition to your library. It has patterns for the 12" and 18" doll. So glad I now have this book.

I have always admired Louise Hedrick's doll outfits they are always very well made and fit the doll superbly. I will get a lot of enjoyment from this book.
