The large variety of beautiful, authentically styled patterns included in this book have been created by an artist with a keenly selective eye. Evelyn Ackerman has accurately distilled the essence of 19th and early 20th century doll fashions into clothing that emulates what the dolls would have worn at the time they were made.
Through the use of this book, the reader can learn the intricate secrets of the great doll couturieres of a bygone age. Even the amateur seamstress can successfully achieve the appearance of dolls dressed much like ones with original clothing because each of the full-size patterns is accompanied by easy to follow step-by-step instructions.
Divided into five sections, the book includes garments for French and German girl dolls, American Schoenhut girl and boy dolls, French fashion dolls, and miniature dolls. Each pattern is shown as a finished garment photographed on a gorgeous antique doll.
Included also are two methods of simple, illustrated instructions for increasing or decreasing pattern size. Here is a book to please not only the collector of antique dolls who needs to dress these treasures or make them elaborate wardrobes, but one to inform the fashion student or costume historian.
