Dolls and dolls' clothes are inextricably linked to the magic and joy of childhood, and in this book there are hundreds of innovative ideas for making a host of delightful doll fashions to please the smallest child or the most sophisticated grown-up. As the author says, "...dolls need clothing. A change of outfit gives them a whole new personality. Clothing is not only decorative: it can be a teaching device. Children learn the fundamentals of dressing and undressing, how to open and close buttons and snaps, and so on..."

DRESSING DOLLS has invaluable step-by-step instructions and photos on every phase of making these mini-outfits: making, altering, and interpreting patterns; using tools and fabrics correctly; and the actual sewing itself. There are comprehensive chapters on dressing the baby doll, the toddler, outfits for fashion and action dolls, and an entire chapter devoted to fabulous costumes.

Here are such stunning garments as a fashionable English riding suit, and elegant evening gown, a sprightly tennis dress, a colorful gingham dress and apron, and a cuddly flannel nightgown with a quilted robe and furry slippers. Some of the unusual costumes included are: Indian girl, ballerina, cowgirl, princess, and more. And there are also a variety of blouses, romper suits, snow suits, underware, party dresses, and coats you can create by following the concise directions.

DRESSING DOLLS is the perfect book for anyone fascinated by this exciting creative outlet.
