PATTERN RATING:Star Rating Pattern pieces are kind of sketchy, need to be enlarged and are NOT gridded. There are very few markings.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating Instructions are broken down roughly into body parts and have very little illustration.

SUMMARY- There's a bit of history of dolls threaded throughout the book that I found interesting and engaging, but I'd hate to try and make any of the dolls. There are no photos, just illustrations - even of the historic dolls - kind of weird. Not the worst I've seen, but certainly leaves a lot to be desired.
