The "1970s FRINGE JACKET & MINI SKIRT" set, by Flossie Potter, is the perfect addition to your doll's '70s wardrobe! Designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl®, this iconic pattern sews up quickly at the intermediate level. The waist-length, collarless jacket and the self-faced mini skirt feature darts in front and back, but their fringe is the popular design element from early in that decade. The jacket's sleeves are adorned with graduated lengths of fringe along the seam, and the mini skirt sports long fringe along its lower half. You can choose to make the fringe from the pattern pieces, or use ready-made fringe. For a more formal look, you can sew it without any fringe at all! Decorative buttons line the jacket's open front, and the skirt closes in back. (See Flossie's Findings in this pattern for a neat new trick to get accurate button placement.) This set can be made from soft faux leather, soft faux suede, high-quality flannel, a cotton fat quarter (as used for quilting) or even a bandana! Complement the set with Flossie Potter's SHOULDER BAG & WALLET, find your favorite far out fabric, and create some cool clothes, '70s style!
