Modular Dolls are constructed with standardised units or dimensions allowing flexibility and variety of use. In this way it is possible to mix and match elements from different compatible patterns.
Using the simple pancake body and leg designs from one pattern, for example, with the more sophisticated fingered hands of another and the complex profile/gusseted head from another you can achieve the desired look you wish.
Such versatile patterns can be found in Patti Medaris Culea's excellent books.

I was so lucky to get the last remaining place on Patti's 2007 Devon 2 day workshop, To see her beautiful creations 'in the cloth' is always fantastically awesome! Thank you Patti.
