Years ago, I took a Folkways pattern and shrunk it down for a 70cm Asian resin ball jointed doll. Sadly, I lost the pattern and had not yet dredged up the enthusiasm to create another. This pattern netted me close to the same effect and was very easy to increase to the size I needed. I love it when the stars come together this way!
I loved the design of the coat. I did make a few changes to the directions in pattern. I lined the cape and used the same lining for the underside of collar. Every one I have showed it to, loves it also.
