PATTERN RATING:Star Rating. Patterns are gridded to help in enlarging. There are some markings but not a lot. Patterns for various dolls use some generic patterns that are at the front of the instructions, with the few necessary unique patterns with the instructions.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating. Instructions are broken down in garment pieces(maybe a paragraph at most to describe construction) with no illustration.

SUMMARY- The book overall didn't engage me, but there is a wide variety of costumes here for the costume enthusiast.
