1860 Civil War Uniform 18" Doll Clothes Patterm

5   |  

With the 1860s Sack Coat and Pants Enlisted Civil War Uniform your doll can dress as a Union or Confederate soldier.  This historical PDF pattern designed by Thimbles and Acorns will fit most 18-inch dolls.

During the Civil War it was not uncommon for boys as young as 12 years of age to enlist as drummer boys. Though they weren’t technically soldiers, they were still close to the battle lines and often took up arms when battles became heated. This uniform is patterned after the standard pants and sack coat issued to enlisted men and is the same style worn by Johnny Clem, who at 9 years of age became the youngest soldier of the Civil War… actually, of any American war.

This pattern has been carefully researched with close attention to detailing. The pants have a fly front with a small working silver button and two front pockets. The jacket features a unique pocket in the front that is accessed through the front placket. The jacket is fully lined … just like the original.

Sack Coat: 1/3 yard of lightweight wool flannel or other lightweight to medium weight woven fabric.  Not suitable for knits.  
 
Sack Coat, Suspenders and Pants Lining: 1/4 yard lightweight cotton muslin.  Not suitable for knits.

Thimbles' Civil War Uniform

Exactly the pattern I needed for my Civil War scene. Following the detailed info in the pattern, I chose black trouser stripes. That guided me toward a Civil War hospital scene. I added a couple of hand drafted pattern pieces, canteen and haversack, to go with the outfit, plus Thimbles' "Kepi Cap" pattern. Perfect outfit. My favorite part was the hidden inner pocket on the coat. A perfect place to carry a letter or photo from home.
