The Dolls Dressmaker ~ The Complete Pattern Book

By Venus A.Dodge

Preloved, hardcover book with dust jacket.

Over 120 designs with actual-size patterns

Venus A. Dodge presents a unique and exciting collection of actual-size patterns for doll's clothes. No enlarging is necessary. Just trace directly from the page to make a ready-to-use pattern. The collection of over 120 designs fits

10-25in (28-63.5cm) dolls and can be altered easily to fit other sizes. This book makes it simpler than ever before to create your own superb dolls' clothes, and enjoy the whole process!

Each of the 45 basic patterns has several views (clearly shown in magnificent colour photographs), offering an infinite variety of ideas, from modern outfits for commercial dolls to accurate period costume for antique dolls.

The author shows how the clever choice of fabric, a different cut to the sleeve or collar, and new trimmings or accessories can completely alter a pattern's effect or period. Full making-up instructions are given throughout for clothes and accessories.

Many of the patterns are simple enough for the absolute beginner, but the experienced dolls' dressmaker should find a stimulating challenge in the authentic and more elaborate period costumes. There is plenty of advice on techniques and how to achieve a neat professional result in a small scale, plus an invaluable and comprehensive list of stockists.
