Among the best-selling dolls on the market today are the charming 18-inch dolls by American Girls, Faithful Friends, and others. The fun of owning these wonderful dolls is dressing them in a variety of outfits. Now home sewers can take their dolls around the world without leaving their sewing rooms. A great value, this book includes full-size tissue-paper pattern sheets for 16 authentic ethnic outfits from Norway, Ireland, Mexico, Italy, China, Japan, Germany, and more. Buying the patterns individually (if you could find them!) would cost much more and the complete instructions and helpful illustrations included assure well-fitting, and attractive results.

These are guides for costumers of collector's dolls rather than children's toys. Sewing teacher and author Hinds gives instructions and patterns for 16 ethnic costumes designed for standard, commercial 18" dolls. Many of the authentic costumes involve traditional fabrics and needlework. Oroyan's costumes are for original character dolls with a period or theatrical theme, similar to those in her previous book, Designing the Doll (LJ 6/15/99). She gives general instructions for specific items of clothing, such as petticoats or hats. Dressed dolls are pictured as examples rather than projects. Both books will appeal to collectors as well as crafters and are recommended for public libraries.
