Looks great worn with your doll’s favorite denim jeans or dress it up with accessories. This blazer is unlined to keep things simple and reduce bulk when layering. We've included instructions for the couture sewing technique of Hong Kong binding to finish off the edges of the interior seams in a beautiful way.

Stratford Swing Coat Designed To Fit 18 Inch Dolls Such As American Girl®: Featured in the 2015 Euro Libby: Stratford outfit, this detailed swing coat designed to fit 18 inch dolls such as American Girl®, is fully lined and features welt pockets, interesting geometric piecing, back pleats and a cute flounce. Mix the classic stylings of the swing coat with the on-trend vision of Liberty Jane® and Voila! You get this beautiful designed jacket! Fabric choice is very important when making this coat as the back flounce needs a somewhat drapey fabric that will allow the subtle folds to form. Suggested fabrics include: lightweight wool, rayon/poly blends, suiting and a lightweight twill. The lining can be made from any poly or rayon lining fabric. We used a delicate cotton lawn print to add a little special treat to the inside of the jacket pictured.
