PATTERN RATING:Star Rating. Patterns need to be enlarged, have no markings whatsoever, and aren't even gridded.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating. Instructions are not broken down in any way and there are no illustrations to help in construction, other than the basic sewing tutorials in the first few chapters.

SUMMARY- I'm glad I bought the reprint rather than going to the extra expense of finding a first edition. For a doll collector, the first edition may have some great sentimental value, but there are easier ways of working up the basic patterns given here.
