The fifth volume of Private Lessons, the full doll making course by Elena Kunin, is devoted to doll costumes: sewing, pattern cutting, and fitting. I hope that this volume will be interesting to both beginning and experienced doll makers: it contains 475 step-by-step photos, which show all the stages of making various doll costumes: modern and historical, simple and complex. We shall also sew underwear, in particular, using antique patterns.
You will learn:
How to choose fabrics for an outfit depending on their composition, thickness, texture, color, and pattern
ways of processing the fabric: dying, painting, embroidery, etc.
How to take your doll’s body measurements and to make patterns: from the simplest to the most complex historical ones.
About fitting a pattern to your doll’s body.
About the work on a historical costume: the idea, the study of authentic historical examples, the choice of fabrics, the features of cut, sewing, and finishing.
How to finish seams and edges in doll clothes
ways of sewing: all kinds of tricks that make your work on the outfit much easier.
How the color scheme and the shape of the costume can reveal your doll’s character.
How to make seams invisible.
How to create pleats.

Wonderful book! Exactly what I was looking for. Many thanks!
I am just getting in to armatures. This tutorial (more of a pictorial really) shows clearly, step by step, exactly how to create a very lifelike figure armature. Well worth the price.
I purchased the queen Anne doll pattern and will be making this dress for her. Looks fun and challenging. Easy download I finished my Queen Anne from this pattern. I plan to make more.
This e-class is very User Friendly. The super diagrams make it so so easy to follow. I would recommend it to both a beginner and intermediate artist...Beginner because it’s so well displayed and written ... and to an Intermediate because it demonstrates how to sculpt a doll with lots of personality. Love it !!!
