This Sherpa coat is a cozy, casual and fun jacket for a chilly day. It can be made in two lengths. View A has a collar and View B has a hood. Both views have pieced fronts and backs. View A has a yoke with a straight edge, and View B has a curved yoke. This coat looks best when made from a faux suede fabric with a fleece underside as this reversible fabric creates it's own effortless cozy 'lining'. Special techniques for sewing the seams together are included in this PDF pattern.
The Sherpa boots have a roll down cuff. The outside seam is sewn so that the fur shows, and the soles are made of felt.

I made this little coat and boots last week. The pattern was well done and the sewing was a breeze. I was a little intimidated to make the boots as I had not made any shoes, yet. Due to the great directions, the boots were so easy and turned out great! I will make this set again when we have more dolls or need to give a gift! Thanks for a great pattern and directions!
I have not had a chance to make it yet! But I'm very excited to try your pattern! It's well written and good directions and I'm sure my granddaughter will love what I make for her doll. Jody
I had some old Sherpa and when I found this pattern I had to make it. The instructions were great and easy to follow. The jacket came together perfectly and looks great.
instructions was very easy to follow, great illustrations
I love this pattern. Made the two coats and the boots. The directions are clear and easy to follow
