Description - Victorian Miniature Fashions by Margaret K. Danson

Dolls' houses have become a major worldwide hobby with hours spent on building the houses and creating the furniture to fill them. This book, however, looks at the dolls themselves; how they should be dressed and how to make the clothes. Once complete, they will provide the final touch to your Victorian household and be an endless source of pride and joy. Topics covered include: - How to construct a doll and advice on useful equipment. - The development of fashions and sketching your own designs. - Detailed instructions on one-twelfth scale miniature fashions for a wedding party of c. 1850-1890. - Individual patterns for twenty-six dolls ranging from bride, dowager duke to parlour maids. - Fully illustrated with colour photographs of each doll.
