This book is invaluable if you have a little someone wanting a new wardrobe for their Ken or Barbie. It has a very good selection of clothing.

Very useful flaps on front and back covers to help keep your place in the book. I'd thoroughly recommend this book.

I love this book. It is quite addictive. The patterns are easier than I thought they would be. I am a granny but I could see the book being useful for a young teen who wants to be a designer. Bonus that there are patterns for Ken too. Garments can therefore be gender neutral.
