I am a novice seamstress and found some of these patterns a little challenging, yet I was able to complete others with no problem. I managed to make the doll bathrobe in about an hour and it looks professional! Just like an American Girl Doll store bought version! What I don't like about the book is that you have to have a variety of fabrics on hand to make the clothes. Most of which, are stretch knits which I don't stock pile. You also have to have access to doll zippers something that is hard to locate in my rural location. Other than that, there are many outfits to select from, which you can make out of scrap cottons. I don't regret buying it. Erin Pennington, Carmi, IL
Absolutly love the book. Instructions are easy to follow. Only instead of making a copy of each pattern pc. I pressed them on fusible web,then cut them up, putting each outfit in a seperate plastic bag. Also making extra pattern pcs. if it called for 4/6 pcs.
Every little girl who loves today's 18" dolls wants her doll to have clothes just like a real girl, and lots of them. This is the pattern book that can do it. There are clothes for every occasion---- and a school uniform ,warmup suit, ballet outfit ,just about everything a girl needs. It's a bargin ,too ,when you consider you would spend 2-3 times the price buying commercial patterns for all the styles included here. And the fit is a little better than most. I had checked this out from my local library and quickly decided I had to have my own .
This is a fun book for the sewing enthusiast- If you enjoy making doll clothes, than you might want to take a look at this book. Very nice and simple patterns for any 18" doll, like the American Girl doll. The only thing that I didn't like was the patterns were printed on pattern-type tissue paper and that can be very fragile to handle over and over. Overall the instructions were great, and the outfits are easy to make. I would definatley recommend this book-
I borrowed this book from the library but must have a copy for myself. Patterns and sewing instructions are included; the patterns are full size - many doll clothing book patterns must be enlarged. The only downside is that the patterns must be traced as they appear on both sides of the large pattern sheet. In any case, the book is a great value.
The book looks wonderful - but it came without the patterns. I would suggest that you ask the seller to double check the book to make sure the patterns are included before shipping.
This book tells you how to dress that special friend of your grand daughter with stylish outfits. Simple patterns for a variety of clothes are presented along with clear instructions for simple sewing. There is a wide range of styles included, from sport clothes to elegant dress up. What more could any little girl want?
This book contains full-sized patterns to create the garments featured, along with construction information. Outfits are your basic wardrobe for the 18" dolls covering all the seasons, and a great staring point for the new collector. Full color photos are a nice touch!
