SUMMARY- This is for constructing porcelain headed baby dolls using molds Ms. Seeley manufactured. She gives a lot of lovely full-page color photos of the various types, and the instructions she provides are squeezed in the back starting around page 40. She provides some great photos among the instructions as well. I did not attempt to rate the baby pattern in the back as it is for reproduction dolls, which I know nothing about! I do know that Ms. Seeley was considered a leading expert in her field and much called upon for advice and instruction.
