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.
