These tiny dolls have a special appeal to miniature collectors, and although their small scale can be challenging, it is not difficult to acquire the skills necessary to make your own heirloom creations.
From tools and materials, through to mastering basic techniques and costume elements, the designs described in my book will provide you with all the information you need to begin creating your very own tiny, toy dolls.
Once you have mastered the basics, you can go on to experiment and design your own unique costumes. The Projects chapter features different costume styles, from very simple to more elaborate, with ideas for variations.
All of the patterns can be mixed and matched to create a wide variety of styles, from historical dolls of the 1700s, through to the most elaborate doll fashions of the 1890s and on to 20th century toy dolls.
This book is written with the beginner in mind, but I hope that experienced micro doll dressmakers will also find inspiration.
Woven throughout is the whimsical story of La Mignonette, a French doll shop where the talented hands of Mademoiselle Emilie, bring her beautiful creations to life...
