The "Betsy Ross Shop Apron & Cap" sewing pattern, by Flossie Potter, is a companion pattern to the "Betsy Ross Shop Dress." The cap is based on caps from the late 1700s, and is one that Betsy may have worn when speaking with customers.
The cap has a wide ruffled brim that pools onto the shoulders. It ties in the back which creates a puffed style that can accommodate our dolls' glorious hair. The apron is a simple rectangle with a casing that holds one long tie.
Combine this pattern with the "Betsy Ross Flag" and the "Betsy Ross Shop Dress" for a complete set!

I enjoyed making this outfit. My first historic dress. I have been wanting to do them. The dress was easy enough, the apron a wiz but the bonnet was a challenge! Now that I have done one the next will be easy. It's really quite simple but... The whole thing turned out so cute, I will do it again. I have decided she needs a petti coat. The fabric is a bit thin so I will use a denser cotton next.
Easy to make accessories to finish your colonial look. Great instructions with photos for each step.
If yu have the Betsy Ross dress pattern, this pattern helps to complete the look. The authentic Colonial bonnet and apron are darling and will give your doll a complete Colonial outfit. Fun to make with excellent instructions. You will enjoy sewing these accessories!
