Inspired by illustrations from a 1915 Sears catalog this beautifully designed Reefer Jacket and Hat pattern by Keepers Dolly Duds is a must have for your doll's Edwardian Era clothing collection. This Reefer Jacket design is being offered in two styles. View A features a tabbed collar with faux pocket flaps in the front. The bishop style sleeves are finished with neat cuffs that fasten with two button and loop closures. View B features full pleated sleeves that taper to the wrist with no cuff and the oh-so-popular sailor collar and tie! Both jackets are unlined, with a four button double-breasted front opening. A smart looking unlined beret style hat adds the finishing touch to this sporty Edwardian ensemble.
This PDF sewing pattern is designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl®.

I made two versions of this coat with the sailor collar, one for me and one for my little cousin. It's utterly adorable, and I could stare at it all day! It fits well, and it was easy to sew and understand the directions.
