I generously gave 2 stars for the beautiful designs. I purchased this book for $20, then recommended it to my friends who also love to make doll clothes ... they also purchased ... then I started making the patterns. You absolutely can not make a large majority of the patterns from the written instructions. I have been crocheting all my life ... I am a certified crochet instructor ... I know how to read a pattern and these are impossible. I ended up just looking at the photos and re-creating the garments myself. But I do not appreciate paying $20 for a book full of beautiful photos ... I expected more. Really disappointed in my purchase.

This book has some of the most beautiful crocheted clothes for 18 inch dolls that I've seen, but I don't think I've tried any one of them yet that doesn't have at least one error in it. I'm an avid and very experienced crocheter, and I know that a few mistakes in patterns aren't uncommon. Some of the errors are relatively minor, and I've been able to figure them out until the one for the skirt and vest made with Lion Brand BonBons, but the vest instructions have me totally stumped. I'm going to start with the basic pattern, then make up the rest of it in order to create the vest. I've invested a lot of money in expensive yarns to make these clothes, and I want to be able to have something to show for my expenditures.

I appreciate the wonderful talent that Nicky Epstein has in creating these items, but please, before publishing patterns, please check and double check to make sure the directions make sense!

The beauty and quality of these clothes deserve a 5 star rating, but I'm giving a lower grade due to the many errors.
