SUMMARY- There's a great selection of Barbie-type doll clothes in this collection for knitters, crocheters and sewers. I was pleased they gave credit to the designer. I was very fortunate to find a copy complete with the large sheet of sewing patterns but not still stapled to the back cover where it was likely to catch and rip a chunk out of the cover. I love that it also has patterns for Ken(Barbie's boyfriend) who is so often overlooked.
