Ten much-loved characters taken from classic stories and fairytales have inspired this delightful collection of storybook dolls? clothes. Christina Harris? eye for detail and concern for period accuracy reproduced in miniature, make this collection of clothes to sew particularly rewarding for any doll collector. The patterns are designed to fit dolls sized from 17 to 24 inches and there are simple guidelines on how to adapt the patterns to fit any size of doll. The general dressmaking instructions for making the garments are collected together at the start of the book with clear diagrams illustrating the stitches and techniques used. Each outfit is described step-by-step and there are also instructions for making all the accessories for each of the characters, including hats and shoes, and a full set of underwear. Photographs show both the front and back of each outfit as well as details of the costumes. Each pair of characters is set in a scene from their story; who could resist creating the costumes of Alice and the Queen of Hearts playing that chaotic game of croquet, or Rapunzel letting down her hair to let the Prince climb up and rescue her?

Containing 2,729 entries, Kevin L. Seligman’s bibliography concentrates on books, manuals, journals, and catalogs covering a wide range of sartorial approaches over nearly five hundred years. After a historical overview, Seligman approaches his subject chronologically, listing items by century through 1799, then by decade. In this section, he deals with works on flat patterning, draping, grading, and tailoring techniques as well as on such related topics as accessories, armor, civil costumes, clerical costumes, dressmakers’ systems, fur, gloves, leather, military uniforms, and undergarments. Seligman then devotes a section to those American and English journals published for the professional tailor and dressmaker. Here, too, he includes the related areas of fur and undergarments. A section devoted to journal articles features selected articles from costume- and noncostumerelated professional journals and periodicals. The author breaks these articles down into three categories: American, English, and other. Seligman then devotes separate sections to other related areas, providing alphabetical listings of books and professional journals for costume and dance, dolls, folk and national dress, footwear, millinery, and wigmaking and hair. A section devoted to commercial pattern companies, periodicals, and catalogs is followed by an appendix covering pattern companies, publishers, and publications. In addition to full bibliographic notation, Seligman provides a library call number and library location if that information is available. The majority of the listings are annotated. Each listing is coded for identification and cross-referencing. An author index, a title index, a subject index, and a chronological index will guide readers to the material they want. Seligman’s historical review of the development of publications on the sartorial arts, professional journals, and the commercial paper pattern industry puts the bibliographical material into context. An appendix provides a cross-reference guide for research on American and English pattern companies, publishers, and publications. Given the size and scope of the bibliography, there is no other reference work even remotely like it.
