See Inside


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.


'With actual-size patterns, super-clear instructions and inspirational illustrations, this book is just the ticket for keeping kids busy - and the results should be very pleasing'
