PATTERN RATING:Star Rating Patterns are all full-size and with some markings to aid the crafter. She gives a great variety of clothing patterns to fit the doll: Camisole and Pantaloons, Nightie and Nightcap, Robe, Afternoon Dress, Overskirt and Bonnet, Blouse, Petticoat and Skirt, Work Dress, Overskirt, Apron and Scarf, Tucked Dress, Bonnet and Pinafore, Blouse, Skirt, Ruffled Overskirt andCapelet, Smaock Dress, Ruffled Petticoat and Bib Apron, Cape, Furt Hat and Fur Muff, Suit, Sedding Dress, Overskirt, Bonnet and Veil, Shoes, Clutch Bag and Drawstring Purse, Doll's "Dolly" and Dress. Doll comes out to about 18" tall, with mitten hands and arms that curve a little away from the body instead of dangling at the sides. She gives a great black-and-white photo for each outfit.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating Instructions for each outfit are pretty brief and there's very little illustration, so if you get stuck, the instructions aren't likely to help you.

SUMMARY- I love her patterns, but if you don't already have some experience sewing, you may get frustrated with her instructions. There are absolutely essential tricks to sewing up doll clothes - the smaller, the more essential. This is a great sized doll for playing with, and the painted hair and face makes this doll safer to play with than most. The great variety of wardrobe makes this book really appealing.
