It has been a crazy week like usual. I have been really wanting to try one of the patterns in today's book, but have not pulled out my sewing machine in quite awhile. Today I am sharing a new doll clothes pattern book. It is Doll Dress Boutique by Erin Hentzel. 

This book has seven chapters. The first chapter is a general sewing chapter with a bonus dress pattern for a tuxedo dress. Then the chapters are about styles of dresses: A-Line, Classic Sleeveless, Country Cottage, Square Neck, Party, and Princess Seamed. All of the chapters also have bonus dress patterns.
Bonus Design: Spring Meadow
The dresses in this book are adorable and there are many different styles and adaptations. They can be made with different fabrics to fit the different time periods of various dolls.
I Heart Westies from Classic Sleeveless Dresses Chapter
The patterns are printable and look easy enough to piece together when necessary. There are shaded pictures of the entire piece to show the portion on that page. Overall the book has great patterns and new styles for doll clothes as well as easy instructions. I hope you will check it out!

Bonus Design: Orange Crush
