Designing the Doll

User Review  - ribbet01 - Overstock.com

This book was recommended at my doll club meeting. I am referring to the section on modelling to make my first model. It has been very helpful. So many beautiful pictures in the book. They provide wonderful examples of the narration. A good resource. Read full review
