Any little girl in your life will be thrilled to receive these beautiful special occasion outfits for their 18-inch dolls. Choose from a stunning wedding gown, bridesmaid's dress, winter coat, ballerina tutu, fairy princess costume and my own favorite the Easter morning outfit.

You will need to be at least an intermediate crocheter to tackle these fairly challenging projects. This is a book of patterns only, although the last two pages do contain a very quick refresher course with diagrams, list of abbreviations and a metric conversion chart. The rest of the booklet (32 pages) consists of the six patterns which come with some large photographs of the garments being modeled both front and back. Patterns have a list of what you need, skill level, measurements, gauge, list of special stitches and full written instructions (no charts). The covers show all the outfits as well, which is useful, and the booklet ought to appeal to anybody with a little girl to crochet for who loves her dolls. A most attractive and professional-looking assortment of garments.

If you cannot find a good range of crochet materials locally try for a list of suppliers.
