1970s book of fashion doll clothing patterns

In the 1970s when my kids were young I traced doll clothes patterns from a book at the public library that had patterns for the 12 1/2 inch fashion dolls - Barbie, etc. The patterns were simplified - most clothing items were cut in one piece and had only one or two seams. White glue was used to keep the edges from raveling, or the clothes were lined to make reversible items. Now my sister wants to make doll clothes for her granddaughters, and I've lost my patterns. Does anyone know the book I'm talking about and if so, can you tell me the title and author? The book was probably published in the 1970s, maybe even the late 60s. I'd really like to find it again. Thanks in advance.
