Easy instructions to follow.

The Rag Doll pattern book was exactly what I was looking for to make dolls with clothes for my smaller great-gran-daughters.

You have to enlarge the pattern pieces in this book.

I couldn't wait for this book and I am thrilled. I think I have every rag/cloth doll book still in print and a few my mother had in the 1940s. This is truly the best. It balances all the right attributes of Rag-dollness so that this is totally appropriate for modern taste as well as nostalgia. I found the clothing delightful....and the presentation of the clothes was unusually artful. The book is worth it just for the clothing and accessories--hats, shoes, ballet shoes, a travel trunk and much much more that I have not seen in other books.

The book presents one doll with variations. I love that you blow the patterns up 140% because I can use the 'as is' pattern for smaller dolls and still be in proportion. Also I am glad that the publishers did not waste costly pages with patterns that needn't be full size. If you are smart enough to sew you can easily use the patterns as starting points for your own exploration. I will change the proportions of the body and head for different dolls. The interesting combination of fabrics has freed me up in my own designing. Also this book, as opposed to others, has no fluff or fillers, you get what you pay for and in this case, much much more.

Oh, did I mention I really love this book. It is currently on my bed-table and has brought me sweet dreams.

Beginning with the fact that the templates must be enlarged by 140% to be used, and there are more than 30 pages of templates, the sewing instructions are sketchy at best.

"Using a sewing machine, join the two half-fronts of the body along the centre and attach the front of the head to the top, at neck level. Do the same with the two half-backs and the back of the head, but leaving a large opening in the centre of the back seam. Position these two pieces on top of one another, right sides together, and sew along the sides, shoulders and all around the head, leaving an opening to insert the arms." Try to follow those. center of the back or center of the head? Around the head but not attached to the body or ? (later the instructions tell you to sew the head to the body).

The raven-haired doll instructions say, "Make the scalp for the black-haired dolls as for the blonde doll (see page 11)." Page 11 is the red-head doll.

The description of the books says "11 dolls with clothes and accessories to sew." Then the instructions for making the doll start with, "All the dolls are made from the same pattern. The body and head are the same, only the facial expressions and hair change." How does that make this a book of 11 dolls? There is ONE doll with seven different hair colors and 13 outfits.

Don't even get me started on what it takes to enlarge each pattern piece to 140% and then cut it out! Several pieces cannot be enlarged on one piece of paper and must be taped together to get a template. How difficult would it have been to provide full-sized templates?

Don't waste your money on this book . . . . enough of us have already.

The dolls are beautiful and the clothes are precious, however you have to enlarge the patterns by 140 percent. If I had know this, I would not have ordered this book. I would have much preferred full size patterns. This is very disappointing.

Yes, it would have been nice to have received the templates already enlarged... and yes, the instructions say to enlarge the patterns 140% or 120% depending on which doll you choose to make, but there is no reason you couldn't use the patterns as given to make slightly smaller dolls. The proportions would still be correct. There's a lot of different clothing to make for these dolls. You could even make just one or two dolls and most of the clothing. I think the clothing meant for the fairy variations would only fit the fairies because of their wings... but everything else should interchange no matter which doll you choose to make as long as the size is correct.

The title of this book confused me, because it claims there are 11 dolls to be made. I counted seven faces. So, I counted again. Instructions for making dolls @ 120% of the given templates account for four variations. I suppose you use some of the same seven faces over again to account for 11 dolls. But, what if you made dolls @ 140% with seven different faces, dolls @ 120% with seven different faces, and dolls @ 100% with seven different faces. Seems to me you could get 21 dolls like that - or make your own faces and vary the sizes more to get a seemingly endless variety of dolls...

I find the dolls adorable but the instructions are sometimes confusing so I'm not certain I could make seven dolls, let alone 11 or 21. I know for a fact that I can make enough sense of the instructions to get more than a few dolls from this book. As for the enlarging of the patterns - anyone with a computer, a scanner, and sufficient knowledge can enlarge their own. All it really takes is a little thought beforehand.

The pics are done nicely:

HOWEVER.....the patterns have to be enlarged to 140%......I HATE THIS!...Theys should state so on the cover of the book!

AND........THERE ARE NO DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO MAKE THE HAIR! OUTRAGEOUSLY MISLEADING!

A waste of time and money for sure! If I had only wanted pictures of cute dolls....but I wanted full size patterns and instructions on how to make and apply the hair! I don't think that is expecting too much!!!
