Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
These are guides for costumers of collector's dolls rather than children's toys. Sewing teacher and author Hinds gives instructions and patterns for 16 ethnic costumes designed for standard, commercial 18" dolls. Many of the authentic costumes involve traditional fabrics and needlework. Oroyan's costumes are for original character dolls with a period or theatrical theme, similar to those in her previous book, Designing the Doll (LJ 6/15/99). She gives general instructions for specific items of clothing, such as petticoats or hats. Dressed dolls are pictured as examples rather than projects. Both books will appeal to collectors as well as crafters and are recommended for public libraries. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
