Words cannot begin to express how horribly disappointed I am with this book.

I watched the Sewing with Nancy episode a number of times and was impressed with how cute the clothes came out and how quick they were to sew. I finally ordered the book. Upon receiving it, I immediately cut out three different items: the bolero and tea time dress (the outfit picture on the left of the cover) and a nightgown.

I figured the bolero would be the speediest, so I started with that...instant gratification, right?

Um....no.

I was immediately disgusted upon reading the directions for the bolero, which are on page 14. "Assemble as for the vest on page 11." I flip to page 11. Where I am told, "Assemble as for the wrap top on page 10." Really, Nancy? Even more frustrating, though, is that the directions for the wrap top make NO FREAKING SENSE. I'm a relatively accomplished seamstress. I've sewn lined dresses. I know how to line stuff. A simple doll's bolero should be not that difficult. And yet, I wasted 30 minutes of my life trying to figure out the heck to sew the sucker, before finally ripping out every seam and casting it aside in disgust.

I then moved on to the nightgown. The only good thing I can say about this pattern is that I managed to get it finished. Not, however, thanks to the stellar directions of Ms. Zieman. Somehow, she managed to take something straightforward and make it unnecessarily confusing. The way she chose to word things was beyond bizarre. It made no sense. And the finished object was....meh. It LOOKED like something that took 30 minutes to sew. Not impressive. My daughter loves it because the fabric matches the nightgown I made for her. But to anyone else? It's not an attractive object.

I have bought most of the books available to make 18 inch doll clothes. Joan's clothes are the most simple to make of all of them...sewn flat until the last seam up the back.

My 9 year old grand daughter wants to learn to sew so she can make her own doll clothes. The 30 minute doll clothes book is the simplest of all and small enough (only a few outfits.) so I don't overwhem her. That is the reason I give it 5 stars. My copy is shopworn so I was trying to find one to buy for her. They seem to be all sold out.

The patterns do have to be traced so that patterns for other outfits are not destroyed. I don't find that a negative. I would have traced them anyway so that when I have chewed up the traced copies using them I could just trace another copy.

This book is amazing. I made the blouse and then made another one extending it to make a dress. It went together so fast. The first time making it only took 25 minutes including cutting it out. I am making each piece of clothing in the book and love the finished product. If you have sewed at all and can follow instructions, you will love this book.
