A copy of 19th century antique patterns made for 18" fashion dolls. These are very unique patterns from a book called "Dolly's Dressmaker" printed in the 1860s in London and Berlin. This one is Part I.

 
Full size patterns to make numerous outfits which include (not all are shown in the color plate):
 
Chemise
Night-Cap
Cap
Trowsers
Petticoat (no pattern, instructions only)
Camisole
First Dress
Second Dress
Frock
Cardinal
Berthe
Canezou
High Body
The Girdle of the Graces
Paletot
Casaque or Promenade Jacket
Mantilla
Mantle
 
There are 16 pages of instructions (enlarged for easier reading), 12 plates of full size patterns, and a color plate of most of the garments.
 
I have included here the first page of the book so you can see how it is written for a young child, giving detailed instructions. There is even a section on measuring your doll for the correct fit.
