The Best Reference book for me, ever!  Apr 24, 2008
19th Century Plains Indian Dresses

I make Native American dolls and their traditional clothing. This book is going to prove invaluable to me as reference for authenticity and style which I am trying to achieve in my dolls. Susan Jennys has provided excellent history and style information to allow me to make clothes that are properly made to represent specific tribal styles. The instuctions are detailed and easy to follow and I find it very easy to look at the patterns and adjust them to the size I need for my dolls. I am also a writer for a Native American web site and this book will be a great resource and reference for me in relation to the issues I cover in my articles, newsletters and forum.
