Flossie Potter's '70s Triple Play is a classic style coat with three length variations for all seasons and occasions. They feature top-stitched seams from shoulder to hem and fur trim all around. The coats can be fully or partially lined and close with a hidden hook-and-eye at the waist.
Pair the coats with Flossie Potter's Tam Cap & Ruffled Scarf for a sophisticated fashion statement, or with the cowgirl hat from the Town & Country pattern for that Rocky Mountain look. Then with the Shoulder Bag & Wallet, your doll is ready for town!

The pattern was easy to follow as directions were simple and easy to understand. I had scraps of faux buckskin with a shearling liner on hand. I cut pattern out just slightly larger to adapt for the thickness of the shearling. I added extra shearling for trim. Except for arms, all seams were on outside and trimmed and sewn down so that just an slight edge of shearling shows. The inside is all shearling!! Tickled pink with outcome!!
This was a great pattern to buy. The directions were very well written and easy to follow. I lined the whole inside of the coat and that was the only place that I made my own modification. Instead of using all of the individual pieces for the lining of the skirt area, I made a one piece pattern for the entire thing. It worked very well. I really struggled with the fir trim as I couldn't find black premade trim and bought a piece of fur instead! Never again!! I'll go wherever I need to find it with finished edges!!! Had fur everywhere and wasn't pleased with the finished edge that I had on the coat. Made the coat out of burgundy velvet with black fur and added a black fur hat. The person I was sewing for was VERY PLEASED with the result!
Love this coat very easy to make. I've used both the fur and minkie for trim. Every girl needs at least one in her wardrobe.
This coat pattern reminds me of a coat I wore in the 70's--same outline and fur only a brick red fabric. It goes together pretty quickly and looks very spiffy when finished. Yu will enjoy making it and helping to complete your doll's 70's wardrobe!!
