I own several pieces by Marirose and she is a dream to work with. Her work is top notch and I admire and respect her talent, but this is a review of book.

I can barely sew and these patterns work for me. I've made 3 of them so far and I have trouble even threading a needle or running a machine. The layout and explanations make sense to an amateur.

On the other hand, she reproduces patterns here for some very rare and hard to find fashions that a Professional could certainly enjoy making.

It's a great book, from a wonderful lady.

I can't say enough good, except to add that she did not ask me to review her book or anything like that.

Go Marirose!

I spend hours looking through this book, imaging what kinds of fabrics to use for each vintage dress design! The author has really easy-to-understand instructions for many of Mattel's original doll outfits. It makes me, a novice seamstress feel confident and excited about sewing. It brings back memories of my childhood and watching my older sister sew clothes for my barbies! I can't wait to start making clothes for my daughter! Highly recommend.

A very detailed and describing book. Many detailed pictures.

I am somewhat disapointed in the content though. Would have expected more advanced or exiting outfits.

Many of the outfit are more "basic" than "Vintage".
