Flossie Potter's two-piece "1950s Department Store" suit evokes a time when shopping was a grand affair. With this intermediate level pdf sewing pattern that's designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl®, you can create several unique styles just by adding or removing some of its features or changing your fabric choice.
Make the sweet jacket with or without the contrasting shawl collar. Turn its 3/4 sleeves into short sleeves by omitting the contrasting cuffs.
The five-paneled gored skirt creates an A-line effect and features optional contrasting faux pockets. Its waistband is flat in the front and elasticized in back. Wear the skirt without the jacket and pair it with Flossie Potter's "Jellies" top for the Sock Hop.
For a more formal look, complete the suit with a cute new pattern hack for the crop top from Flossie Potter's "Town & Country Set." Then take the brass elevator to the third floor to shop 'til you drop!

Completely love this pattern. This went together so easily and smoothly and is ADORABLE. I did "cheat" and use 10" of .5" elastic in the waistband instead of using the pattern guide for the elastic. If you choose to do that, then you can sew the skirt panels in any order. I cannot believe how easy the jacket was and how "finished" it looks..just a cute little suit!
This is a sweet 2-piece set that is quick to make. The contrast pockets on the skirt are a nice touch and can be made of either contrasting or matching fabrics. The jacket is completely lined but don't let this scare you away--the instructions clearly show you what to do and you will end up with a darling jacket. This pattern is a great addition to your doll pattern wardrobe!
