Make this classically styled coat with this beautifully designed sewing pattern by Keepers Dolly Duds. It is an essential part of any doll's wardrobe. This fully lined mid-length princess style coat includes two finishing options and the look is completed with a darling Beret!

View B features false pocket flaps sewn into the princess seams fastened down with decorative buttons. Smart looking bands accentuate the cuffs and back waistline. It buttons up the front, opening just below the neckline in a short lapel.
A simple, but swanky, Beret gives this coat a versatile appeal for both formal and informal occasions.

I have made this coat (both views) numerous times. They are one of my most popular items at my craft fairs. I have made them from everything from cotton to fabrics such to heavy wool and each time they have turned out beautifully. The instructions are extremely well written and easy to follow. The fit is perfect.
I had the pleasure of testing this pattern and it goes together wonderfully. Actually, I've made several of the Keepers patterns and would recommend them without reservation!
