SUMMARY- This is not a pattern book. It is a self-published sketch book of her gown collection, with colorful commentary, old-time recipes for things like hair pommade and cold cream, and snippets of old songs. I found it rather charming and have it in my costuming book collection - but I'm also putting it here, as it contains information that can be used to dress antique dolls.
