1930s Coat Set 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

7 reviews   |  

This set by Dollhouse Designs was inspired by the very stylish coats worn in the 1930s. From the princess seaming, or fit-and-flare, silhouette to the double-breasted front opening, this tailored dress coat is genuine in design. Longer than most coats today, it kept girls in dainty dresses warmer. Fur trim was very popular as well as practical. Of course, many different fabrics may be used for the collar & cuffs.

Whichever light to medium weight fabric you choose, this design is sure to please.  Make it up in various fabrics and trims and watch how many admiring looks your 18” girl will receive. The tailored details make this an intermediate skill pattern. Clear instruction & images guide you through each step. The coat is fully lined.

Awesome coat

I love this coat! It is so cute. It’s the first outerwear I’ve tried and it turned out pretty well.

There were a couple things that were not clear on the pattern but the designer is going to correct them.

1930s Coat Set 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

As with all my Pixie Fairy patterns, this one was fun to make. I made in a teal blue wool and have another cut in a period black and purple print. People seem to think that "how hard can it be - it's a doll dress!" but just like any pattern, well drawn pieces and well written instructions are essential. This pattern has both. I love the attention to detail this pattern has. I have a picture of my mom taken in the early 1930s wearing a coat very similar to this one. This is a 5 star (or hearts) pattern!!!
