Like all of her books for 18" dolls, this book contains many great patterns along with easy to understand, well written directions. Great pictures let you see the finished as reference in addition to the directions.

Joan Hinds has now done for 15" baby dolls what she did for 18" dolls. This book has many possibilities for baby doll wardrobes. Patterns are full sized and sewing directions are clear. I'm enjoying using this book.

Granddaughters with Bitty Baby and the Bitty Twins made this book a real find. Most patterns don't relly fit the dolls. These are quite good, although measuring the legs and arms as well as other body parts is a very good idea. Recommend tracing pattern pieces onto the plastic used for quilt templates or something like that if you are going to make many outfits. Instructions are adequate for sewers. Not for beginners.

This is an OUTSTANDING book! I just love it!!!!!!!!! I keep checking it out of the library because it is not
available to purchase any longer--unless you want to pay a fortune. DO NOT BUY without the patterns!!!! it should NOT be sold without the patterns! The book is useless without them! The instructions are fabulous and the work is outstanding! She gives a chart so you know which size pattern to use and they range from small to x-large. There is a great variety! I soooo wish they would publish more of these! If you can find it with the
patterns, snatch it right up! If not, you might find it a waste of your money!!!!!!!!!

It's a wonderful book for those who love to make doll clothes. As a grandmother who enjoys making a doll wardrobe for a precious gd, I found the patterns and sewing tips very helpful.

Was looking for a book of patterns to make clothing for the 15 inch Bitty Baby dolls. I had recently purchased a Joan Hinds book for 18 inch dolls (American Girl) and was so pleased with it. Probably about 25 different patterns, all easy to cut and great, clear stitching instructions with great drawings as well as photos. I hoped this book would be similar. It was not. First, it has patterns for several sizes of baby doll, which sounds good at the outset -- until you have to find pattern piece #31 in the "medium" size, and find that it is in the MIDDLE of a huge tissue sheet with all "large" size pieces. This happened over and over when I was cutting the patterns out, almost leading me to ditch the book. There also are not many different patterns. There are "variations," in which the same basic dress is embellished with different machine embroidery patterns, etc. As I do not own an embroidery machine, this was useless to me. Seemed to be missing some basics too, like sunsuits, rompers, buntings. All in all, I did not think it was worth the price and would not recommend it.

This book includes large color pictures, CLEAR black and white diagrams, patterns in an attached envelope and excellent instructions. Although I am an experienced sewer, I believe the instructions and patterns would be accessible for all but the rawest of beginners. It might be suitable for a girl to learn to sew clothes for her doll with a bit of help, and, by extension, for herself. Many of us learned to sew that way. As a plus, there are several knitted sweaters and accessories included in the collection as well. The pictures are very appealing and the designs bear great similarity to the American Girl designs, so any little girl would not be too disappointed in the outfits not being identical to what was in the catalog. All in all, I would highly recommend this item.
