Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Hinds has to her credit eight books of sewing patterns for 18" dolls and is a widely recognized expert in doll costuming. What, you might ask, are 18" dolls? These include a number of brand-name dolls such as the American Girls, Creative Friends, and the Springfield Collection, which are all approximately that height. In planning for this book, Hinds gathered together a focus group of girls from ages five to 11 and asked them what type of clothing they wanted for their dolls. Their overwhelming desire was for doll clothes patterned after comfortable, fashionable clothing they might wear themselves. Included in this compendium are illustrated step-by-step instructions and full-size tissue pattern sheets (in a pocket in the back of the book) for sewing 16 mix-and-match outfits such as khaki cargo pants and a fleece vest or a tank top and boxer shorts. Eleven accessory items add spice to the collection. Public libraries with a demand for books on dolls and sewing for dolls will want to purchase this one.
