Reviews - What do customers think about Fashions for Small Dolls?

Clever techniques  May 9, 2008
The book is enjoyable for its beautiful photographs alone, but it is the cunning drafting of the patterns (which do things like avoid tiny armholes)that makes this book truly worthwhile. I have made several little garments using this book, getting fine results with little trouble. While the book is intended for making contempory doll clothes, you can also make at least some styles of historic doll clothing as well (one garment I made was for a small, late 19th C. doll). However, what earns my 4 star rating as opposed to a 5 star is the lack of some essential directions. Little information is given on making skirts, leaving the maker to figure it out on their own. Worse is the lack of any smocking patterns to go along with the charming smocked designs that are shown in photographs. This would have been much preferable to me rather than the vast quantity of detailed variations given for doll forms, as I can wiggle out size variants easily, and imagine that most makers of doll clothing can do so as well.
Modern doll patterns  Aug 3, 2007
Nice patterns with easy to follow instructions. More for the modern doll maker, than for the antique reproductionist.
Fashions for small dolls  Jul 2, 2007
Another fabulous book by Rosemarie Ionker regarding sewing for small dolls.
Contains great patterns which fit with contemporary sewing techniques.
Great Resource  May 22, 2007
What a fabulous book! She has a very innovative way of eliminating excess seams and inserting sleeves easily. This book is great for Ann Estelle and her patterns can be enlarged a little to also make clothes for Betsy McCall!
Review for "Fashions for Small Dolls"  Mar 21, 2007
This is a wonderful little book for those interested in making their own doll clothes for dolls 7 inches through 12 inches tall. The beautiful photo section gives the sewer many examples and ideas for all types of clothes. The back of the book contains patterns for all the doll clothes shown in the book in all the sizes. The directions section, in the middle, does require some reading but is well written. Fabric choices are discussed, as well as embellishment, patterns, sewing tips and construction. There is a very handy table for doll measurements included. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys and is interested in creating beautiful and unique doll clothes.
