Featured in the 2015 Euro Libby: Stratford outfit, this detailed swing coat designed to fit 18 inch dolls such as American Girl®, is fully lined and features welt pockets, interesting geometric piecing, back pleats and a cute flounce. Mix the classic stylings of the swing coat with the on-trend vision of Liberty Jane® and Voila! You get this beautiful designed jacket!
Fabric choice is very important when making this coat as the back flounce needs a somewhat drapey fabric that will allow the subtle folds to form.
Suggested fabrics include: lightweight wool, rayon/poly blends, suiting and a lightweight twill. The lining can be made from any poly or rayon lining fabric. We used a delicate cotton lawn print to add a little special treat to the inside of the jacket pictured.
