From more than 25 years of thorough Research, NOM  doll costume patterns
 depict attire that was worn at various periods during
the early 1800s to the late 1900s;
even through name changes of many countries.

Illustration Warning for NOM doll costume patterns:
There are ethnic/nationality/regional patterns of attire worn by peoples, tribes, and societies around the world, 
which show FEMALE NUDITY on top.
These costumes were authentic during the 1800s to early 1900s.  
(A few remain today.)
A few of you may feel these illustrations are not appropriate 
for very young children.

Nation-Of-The Month nationality patterns are still the most authentic ethnic costume patterns for dolls,
available IN THE WORLD.....and with more countries available.
  


Wonderful World Of Dolls "Nation-Of-The-Month"  doll costume patterns are now available
to purchase individually, or by the year....No club membership needed.

Not only will you receive pattern pieces and detailed instructions to make a fabric type costume (as with all Wonderful World Of Dolls Patterns;) but very detailed instructions and diagrams for doll costumes that are more "tribal" in nature.  Complete details are given for proper hairdo (no matter how unusual,) jewelry and necessary accessories...including body markings; and props where appropriate.  Numerous tips are given to improvise items you find around the house to make portions of doll accessories or costumes.

National costume dolls have been collectible long before doll collecting became fashionable.  I have been told by many of my customers who have been teachers, that they have used ethnic costumed dolls from my Nation-Of-The-Month patterns as visual aids when teaching young children how people of the world looked and lived in times long ago.  Some of their collections are now in museum and library collections.
