PATTERN RATING:Star Rating Patterns are all full-size, but you'll probably have to crack the spine of the book in order to get a clean photocopy of some of the patterns. The patterns are usually marked with the grainline and the name of the pattern, but have few other markings(like the seam allowance!). Most of the dolls are made from the same base pattern, with clothing and details changed to make the character.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating Instructions are broken down into numbered steps and have excellent illustration to help guide the crafter.

SUMMARY- I like Jodie Davis' work in general(you can tell by the number of her books I've reviewed), but this one didn't grab me like some of the others, and I can't put my finger on why. These are solid designs with great instructions.
