Publisher Comments:

This book is the third installment on making creative art doll clothing and accessories from successful doll artist Patti Culea, following Creative Cloth Doll Making and Creative Cloth Doll Faces, both from Rockport Publishers. This book builds on the previous two by delving into how to make exotic and beautiful garments and accessories such as hats, shoes, and purses for art dolls.

This is the only book available on making clothing for art dolls. Moreover, it not only includes a pattern for various wardrobe staples, but the author offers basic garment making techniques, as well as information on decorative fabric treatments and embellishments.

Culea provides tips and techniques for creating everything from a vintage 1940's ensemble to a 1960's type of outfit. There are techniques for dyeing, painting, and stamping to create a beautiful evening gown and how to drape a doll body to create your own pattern. Professional tips, ideas for embellishments, cutting-edge techniques, short cuts, pattern making ideas, and more are also included.

Synopsis:

Includes step-by-step instructions for creating an array of couture garments and accessories for art dolls and provides insight into a variety of techniques including sewing, painting, dyeing, collage, draping, and pattern-making.

An excellent book for anyone interested in creating soft dolls or outfits for them!

Featuring both how-to instruction and plenty of pictures of finished dolls, this book is sure to snap you out of any case of "artists block".

By far my favorite doll making book.
