I love sewing, and think that making dolls clothes is a great way of advancing your sewing skills without worrying about wasting fabric.
This book is fabulous. It has 40 projects and the dresses are amazing.
From A line to party dresses this project book ensures your child's best friend is a well dressed fashionista.
The techniques and instructions are simple to follow, each dress has it's own section, and I think that each dress can be adapted and changed according to what you want.
The templates are full sized, I traced mine onto to copy paper which keeps the original sheet intact for future use.
This book is highly recommended and I think that even a novice sewist can follow the patterns and achieve something amazing.
