1896 Susan B. Anthony Outfit 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

53 reviews   |  

What would you risk to cast your vote?  If you could be arrested for it, would you bother?  Susan B. Anthony felt that the consequences were worth it.  She lived in a time where women, especially married women, had very few rights.  Although she did not live to see it, Ms. Anthony's tireless campaign for women's suffrage eventually secured the passing of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, granting American women the right to vote.   

This 26-page PDF sewing pattern by Flossie Potter includes step-by-step instructions that are illustrated with line drawings to show you how to create this stunning outfit, which is based on a photograph of Susan B. Anthony at the California Campaign in 1896.  The ensemble includes a ruffled blouse, fully-lined jacket, and floor-length skirt.

Complete the outfit with the Susan B. Anthony's Alligator Bag & Fliers pattern also available from Flossie Potter.

Susan B Anthony dress

It was a challenge to make because sometimes I didn’t understand the pattern right away. My granddaughter is interested in the suffragettes and so now I am making another one too. It turned out nice and the skirt can be mixed with other tops.

Stunning

I made this for a lady from Colorado for her doll. She has 10 dolls and dresses them for different holidays. She wanted this dress made so I said I would do that. It turned out stunning. It was hard to give it up. The directions are well written and the dress fit like a glove. I love the patterns from this designer. I will make another one someday for my little great granddaughters when they are old enough. If you love historical clothes, you won't be disappointed.

Wonderful directions

My goal was to complete this for Susan B Anthony's birthday. I am ahead of schedule. The instructions and illustrations are wonderful. I know I will make this in different fabrics another time. The details make Flossie Potter patterns so worth the effort. Thank you.
