AMERICAN COSTUME DOLLS How to Make and Dress Them

Email this review


This should be excellent for craft work in schools, for dressmaker classes, and for convaleament children (yes, and adults) in hospitals and at home. A clear, practical and inespersive method for making dolls out of wire and paper, with each step described and illustrated. Some space is actually given to remedies when things don't go quite right, an unusual feature. Then follow details of setting poses, of making hands, feet, wigs, of painting faces. The balance of the book is given to specific dolls, such one representing a period in American history, boy dolls and girl dolls, and the appropriate clothes. The girl dolls illustrated were made by the classes in a Detroit Public School.
