A very nice book to show how each doll maker originally dressed their dolls. Antique dolls often come with antique dresses from other doll makers or even newly produced clothing. Your taste in how to dress your dolls depends upon how authentic you would like your dolls to be and also the depth of your pocket book.
The only patterns are for shoes. It describes the clothing, but assumes you will have someone else make it. On the plus side, it has diagrams for restringing antique dolls, and the pictures of clothes are pretty.
Great book on costuming French dolls.
