Summary from Usborne

Includes over 350 stickers to create the dolls’ outfits, including 150 blank stickers ready to customise.

Each double-page features a different theme, including summer florals, evening wear, tropical beachwear and festival fashion.

Also includes hints and tips on patterns and colour combinations to use, as well as ideas for creating your own fashion sketchbook and mood boards.

Nayuleska's thoughts 
This is more engaging than the other sticker dolly dressing books because of the added interaction of
adding your own designs to the outfits. There are more clothes than needed for the dolls but that means you can have some for the exciting suggestion on the last page which Im not talking about! The reason this got a lower grade was because I don't have any colouring media, so I went and bought a packet of pencils....but sadly pencils don't work on the type of paper used. That didn't stop me from being creative - I was able to draw in normal pencil some designs.
Fish themed outfit - not sure if you can see it that clearly - try clicking on the picture for a better view. Ignore the fish at the top of the trousers, as I don't think I want them there.

See the anchor theme?
And I used some of the stickers meant for the page to decorate this girl's dress. 
Maybe if the book could say what type of colouring media you need at the beginning then it would get bumped up a grade.
