Title: Dressing Dolls Author: Charlene Davis Roth
Publication Date: TPB:1976
Publisher: Crown Publishers, Inc., NY
Page Count: 112
Book Dimensions(ht. x w.): 11" x 6 1/2"
PATTERN RATING: Patterns are very basic with few markings to help the crafter. There is a nice variety here, especially for a fashion(barbie) doll, both male and female, and she covers several different styles of doll.
INSTRUCTION RATING: Instructions are a few paragraphs with some illustration.
BONUS MECHANICS RATING: This book has a small chapter on drawing your own basic patterns for a doll which looks useful, so Ms. Roth gets an extra star.
SUMMARY- Ms. Roth covers a gamut of dolls here, and does a decent job of describing the process of drawing a pattern for a specific doll. I would not give this book to a beginner, though, and there are other books more valuable to an experienced doll maker to own.
