The ten attractive dolls displayed on the covers of this book are designed to capture the prevailing fashions of the nineteenth century as reflected in paintings, drawings, and photography of the time — and you can make them all with the help of the step-by-step instructions and full-size patterns contained in this book. This book contains instructions and patterns for making basic bodies, including variations such as sewing the bodies out of felt and adapting the body patterns for use with china heads. Each doll is then featured with special instructions and patterns for clothing, and instructions for creating an authentic face and hairdo. Full-page photographs of the completed dolls are also included.
The clear and precise instructions are easily understandable to anyone with a basic knowledge of sewing, and they include additional suggestions and guidelines for more ornate work that's well within the boundaries of authenticity.
