Flossie Potter's "1800s Simple Stitches Heart Warmer & Snood" is the PDF sewing pattern with easy-to-make accessories for its companion pattern, the "1800s Simple Stitches Dress." Both are designed to fit 18-inch dolls such as American Girl®.
The Heart Warmer is made in one piece (no seams!) and is surrounded by fringe. The two front pieces cross over your doll's heart, being true to its name!
The Snood is similar to a hair net worn at the back of the head to keep long hair in place. Both of these pieces were quite popular in the 1800s, but they've been worn in other centuries as well, making them a good choice for most of your historical dresses.

Love this simple accessory pack. So easy to make. Looks terrific too.
This lovely set is the companion pattern to go with the 1800s Simple Stitches Dress pattern by Flossie Potter. I had the privilege of being able to test this pattern. It goes together so quick and easy, and it looks great paired up with the dress. It was the first time making a Heart Warmer, and it couldn't have been easier. The instructions and pictures are so well done in the pattern and guides you quickly through it. The Snood was also easy to do. I didn't have any mesh so I used stretch cotton elastic fabric. Be sure to check this out and don't for get the dress too. It is a great set to have.
