This coat and hat bundle is perfect for all seasons. It contains three coat versions, and THREE hat designs. You can mix and match and create a timeless classic for your favorite 18″ doll such as American Girl®.
The Classic Coats:
All views of the Classic Coat have princess seams and an inset side bodice.
Views A and B have a full pleat in the front. The back has the same princess seams and side bodice, with a very full pleat in the center. View B has a bow, and View C has a classic belt secured with buttons.
The coats are fully lined, including the sleeves, and the lining has a ruffle on the bottom for fullness.
There are two collar variations. Views A and C have a round collar and instructions are included for sewing with fur. View B has a straight collar, and the top of the coat may be folded back to form lapels.
The Classic Hats:
This bundle has three classic hats to complement your Crabapples Classic Coat or any other favorite outfit for your 18” dolls. All hats are fully lined. The brims are different, giving
them completely different looks.
The Cossack style hat is edged with real or faux fur to frame the face of your doll for a warm winter look and the crown has a flat top.
Two cloche hats are also included. One has a clever brim that forms a self-made bow at the side and has a rounded crown. The second cloche has a circle crown with side panels and can be trimmed with a bow and optional ribbon band. All hats are sure to become classics in your doll’s wardrobe.
The PDF pattern pieces are drawn with a CAD program, and include highly detailed step-by-step instructions with pictures to guide you through the sewing process.
