I have borrowed books from the library on doll making, bought a sculpting DVD (it was terrible I thought a little kid was holding the camera), tried different fabrics and patterns and this book is the best, Doll Fashionistas.

It has the basic doll pattern, a face template, a hair loom, face sculpting after painting in the features, doll clothes patterns, and a DVD.  I haven't made a doll yet, I just got the book yesterday, but I'll post my finished doll when it's done.

Borrow it from the library, but you'll want to own it.

My library doesn't have this book but I hope they can borrow it for me.  After seeing the book on amazon.com, I agree that it looks great!
http://www.amazon.com/Doll-Fashionistas-Beautiful-Ultra-cool-Fashions/dp/0896897125/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1238787201&sr=1-1

The author's amazon blog has lots of photos of the dolls and clothes.  You can see them here:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/blog/AGG9QSW8Y22XV/ref=cm_blog_dp_artist_blog

The blog mentions a couple of typos in the book so you may want to check that out before making your doll in case they affect the specific item you are making.

I look forward to seeing the doll you make.  I'm not a very talented painter so the faces sort of intimidate me.  When you post your doll I hope you'll tell us how difficult that part was.
