PATTERN RATING:Star Rating. There is a small grid of clothing patterns tucked on the last page for some of the clothes - and the patterns will have to be enlarged a good bit to be usable. They have no markings to help the crafter. The designs are very simple.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating. Even with photo illustrations, I had a hard time determining what part of the face they were working on. There's no diagram showing their stitching pattern for bringing out the face details.

SUMMARY- I have soft sculpting booklets that are a lot better done than this, but this was one of the earliest. The booklet doesn't have a copyright date on it, but the used copy I picked up happened to have a dated newspaper clipping in it and so for lack of better information, went with that.
