Whether you've got a collectible heirloom figure requiring a replacement wardrobe or a poor little naked castoff dolly needing a few outfits, you'll find help in Dressing Porcelain Dolls. Designed to fit dolls ranging from 15 to 22 inches, the clothing is based on the luxurious dresses of the 19th century. The outfits are elaborate, replete with gathers, tucks, ruffles, pleats, lace trims, and other essentials of Victorian fashion; there are even patterns for a corset, a crinoline cage, and frilly undergarments. Step-by-step directions, construction diagrams, and full-size patterns are provided for each element of each ensemble (there are eight dolls in all: six fashion plates, plus a baby in a christening layette and a boy doll in a sailor suit). Each item is rated by sewing skill required: simple, average, and complicated.
