About this title


In this book, highly recognized doll costumer Louise Hedrick offers a collection of 56 patterns, authentically adapted from those presented in La Poupée Modèle between 1864 and 1874, for creating an entire wardrobe to fit both the classic 18-inch and 12-inch dolls of the period, and today s popular 18-inch and 12-inch reproduction French fashion dolls. From whitework undergarments and nightwear to dresses, headwear and outerwear, the 28 ensembles in this book encompass a complete wardrobe for a fashionable doll. By making slight variations in the patterns, fabrics and trims, a seamstress can enlarge this comprehensive wardrobe even further.

From the Inside Flap:

The period of ladies' fashions in France dating from the mid 1860s to the mid 1870s epitomized the classic beauty of design, fabric and embellishment. It was an era when hand sewing and creative stitching were at their best, and when the skill of artisans produced the finest, most intricate accessories. Not only did fashionable ladies and their young daughters boast the finest of wardrobes, but so did the popular French fashion dolls of the time. The most respected source for creating dolls' clothing was the girls' magazine, La Poupee Modele.The collection offers a brief glimpse of the fashions as they changed between 1864 and 1874; the garments and accessories demonstrate most of the basic shapes of sleeves, bodices and skirts of the period, with directions for executing them following the construction techniques used during that era. Photographs of both antique 12-inch and 18-inch dolls illustrate as closely as possible the patterns as presented in La Poup e Mod le, with some simplifications made for the 12-inch doll. Whether dressing an antique or reproduction 18-inch or 12-inch fashion doll, today's seamstresses will enjoy reproducing a complete and varied wardrobe based upon Louise Hedrick's landmark collection.
