This book teaches children aged 7+ how to make mix-and-match clothes for a standard 30 cm (12 in) plastic doll
Its approach is simple, quick and fun, and the results are extremely stylish. The book includes actual-size patterns for nine garments along with super-clear instructions and illustrations of each step. It also features inspirational photographs of the dolls modelling the finished clothes.
A section at the back sets out the basics of sewing, including how to thread a needle, do a running stitch and sew on poppers and buttons.
