I have to give this book five stars for effort and I'm sure the author did a beautiful job for sewers with a little experience. I thought I had a little experience however the instructions were too hard for me. I barley nailed out a jumper dress but even that didn't turn out all the great and it took hours to make!! When I was done I thought the $35 for an actual American Doll outfit seemed like a deal! I need a book that has real photos of every single step. The drawings in this book were great but just not enough for an inexperienced sewer like me.
