Here are thirty exquisite old-fashioned dolls to make at home - dolls to treasure, just as our grandmothers and great-grandmothers loved the originals. Each one is an authentic copy of a period doll made from 1750-1950: including Victorian rag and "china" dolls, Georgian turned wooden dolls, Frenches bebes, a 1920's "Bye-lo" baby, fashion and character dolls and felt children from the 1950s. Whether your skills run to simple rag and felt, or to a sophisticated beauty sculpted in clay, you will find comprehensive patterns and instructions for both bodies and costumes, plus a full-colour illustration of each individual doll. Venus A. Dodge is scrupulous about historical accuracy, giving clear, detailed advice on how to acheive the exact period effect using modern methods and fabrics. There is also an introduction to the advanced techniques of porcelain doll-making.
