How do you make doll clothes?

I'm going into making porcelain dolls. I want to make clothing for them that is outstanding. Can I use people patterns and just alter the measurements? If there is anyone out there who is experienced in making doll clothes and has a few tips I could use that would be great!

Yes, you can scale human patterns down for dolls, but you need to know how.  Sadly I don't.  But, if you hunt around on the internet there are bound to be groups or people who can tell you how.

Also, go check out books on dolls and doll making in the public library - don't forget the children's section of books as well.
