PATTERN RATING:Star Rating Patterns are full-size and well marked copied on one double-sided 11"x17" sheet stapled in the middle of the booklet. You get a pattern for 1(one) doll, with no clothes.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating You get very detailed and well laid out instructions with photo illustration to go with them - something I think is very important for a soft-sculpture doll.

SUMMARY- I was pleased she gave such detailed instruction for the basic doll, but went through the booklet 3 times thinking I'd somehow missed the clothing section. The pages aren't numbered, so I suppose it's possible that someone pulled out the pattern sheets and instruction pages from my copy - but the staples don't look disturbed. Maybe she published a separate book with just clothing? I have no idea. Anyway, all the outfits on the cover are not covered in the patterns and instructions. It's just the basic doll.
