about

I Can Make Dolls' Clothes is an easy-to-follow pattern book certain to keep creative youngsters entertained for hours as they create a full wardrobe for their standard (12 in) dolls. The approach is simple, quick, and fun, and the results are extremely stylish. Budding fashionistas can follow the patterns and clear instructions to make all kinds of garments and accessories for their dolls, using basic materials such as scraps of fabric, sequins, and a needle and thread.

Throughout, young seamstresses and designers are encouraged to be creative and adapt the patterns to make their own designs. Actual-size patterns include a tunic top, a knee-length coat, an A-line skirt, a faux-fur jacket, a skater skirt, a day dress, a party dress, an evening purse, and a fringed bag. Illustrations of each step and of dolls modeling the finished clothes provide guidance and inspiration, while a section at the back of the book sets out the basics of sewing, including how to thread a needle, do a running stitch, and sew on buttons.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Charming Book for Beginners While browsing my local store, I found a copy of this book. While I had previously considered purchasing the book for myself, I could see that the patterns and instructions are really suited for a child or someone older, who is new to sewing. The patterns are simple and the instructions clear and straightforward. For someone with more sewing experience, this book is a great jumping off point for further creativity, as well as being a good reference to whip up a quick wardrobe for a doll in need. This book is on my wishlist, as I think it would be more suitable for one of my children, but I believe it is a useful title for anyone who likes to sew for 29cm fashion dolls.
