Reviews - What do customers think about Dressing Dolls with Rosemarie Ionker?

Not the best for even intermediate skills  Feb 6, 2008
It's a beautiful, well produced book, with nice pictures. BUT,the patterns, especially the patterns for the larger dolls, are practically incomprehensible and I've been sewing for years. The explanation on how to use these patterns is insufficient. If I had actually seen the book before buying, it would still be sitting on the shelf. I don't know if I'll even use the patterns and I will probably end up re-selling the book. The photos of the dressed dolls were great and provide good indeas, but trying to decipher the patterns probably isn't worth the trouble. Very disappointing.
Not for the novice  Aug 13, 2007
This book offers quite a variety of patterns for many sizes of dolls. It is not for the novice sewer as the adjustments for certain patterns require previous knowledge and more advanced sewing skills. Patterns must be copied or traced before use, as the larger sizes are on multiple pages. However, sizes range from 7" dolls to larger 18"+ dolls.
Not For Beginners  Oct 5, 2005
The book is terrific once you learn how to use it. Took a while for me--but I appreciate the different sizes and the styles that are interchangeable. The introduction could do a better job of explaining how to make the patterns work.
Excellent Source for Many Sizes  Aug 15, 2005
As it's very expensive to buy individual vintage patterns for your dolls, here's a wonderful source for basic patterns of many sizes. A very good size chart is included with height, arm length, chest width, etc. measurements to compare to your doll. I was a bit confused by the re-sizing patterns, but I figured it out eventually. Dress styles suit vintage dolls (i.e., simple dresses, sundresses, pj's, coats, etc.) However, you could contemporize them with fabric choices. I would not recommend this book for beginners as there are few instructions of how to sew the patterns. I believe this book is intended for those who don't usually have to read instructions for these simple styled patterns.
