PATTERN RATING:Star Rating. Patterns are full sized, well marked with seam allowances, notches and dots, and don't fall into the ditch where the book is bound. Pattern pieces are cut in sections instead and just need to be taped back together once photocopied or traced.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating. The instructions are broken down into steps and each step has a photograph for illustration. I don't think you can get better than that!

SUMMARY- This is a really lovely book with beautiful 18" dolls. There aren't many, for a 159 page book, but that is amply made up for in high quality.
