Victorian Caroler's Coat and Bonnet 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

2 reviews   |  

Make this delightful Victorian Coat and Bonnet ensemble that is sure to fill you with some Charles Dickens inspired Christmas spirit! This delightful Keepers Dolly Duds pattern is a long-time holiday favorite. The fully lined coat is topped with a nicely tailored removable Pelerine that wraps around the for extra warmth and protection from the elements as well as a bit of subtle elegance. The full length coat buttons down the front and flares out from the waist and the wide sleeves to make room for the wide Victorian style skirts and bell shaped sleeves. The fully lined bonnet exudes a simple elegance with an inner ruffle and tailored bow that frames the face and echos the trim that traces the outlines of the coat and sleeves.

This PDF sewing pattern is designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl®.

    Love the victorian coat and bonnet

    KDD is my favorite designer. She takes you through every step with ease..This is not a quick project to just whip up, but like all her other patterns I have done, they are the most satisfying. Keep up the good work KDD, looking forward in doing more of your patterns.

    I really feel audacious, giving a Keepers pattern less than a five-star review, My ineptness is not your fault! I regard my self rather firmly in the "intermediate" skills level. But I got confused with the collar, sleeves. facings, lining. The progress through the steps seemed unconventional, and I just got lost. I will probably try again, as as I really like the look of this. But I can't say my overall experience has been five-star.
