This trendy jacket was one of our most popular designs for 18” dolls and will be a great addition to your smaller dolls' wardrobe. If your doll needs a heavy coat, this is the pattern for you.
Design details include: Long mid thigh length, two front patch pockets with flaps, cuffed raglan style sleeves, and a lined hood. Note - the fit of this coat is designed to be loose, with the dolls hair easily tucked inside the coat down her back. This coat can comfortably be worn over other clothing items and overlaps at CF with an optional toggle style button closure. The body of the coat is not lined. There are just a few exposed seams (straight raglan sleeve seams and side seams) that can be finished with a simple zig zag, couture Hong Kong binding, or with use of a serger. Hong Kong binding provides a fun pop of color and a unique “surprise and delight” pop inside the coat!
This pattern also works great to make a hooded raincoat! You can see an example in the 18” doll product listing. Pair it with your WellieWishers™ boots for a darling look for your doll! To make this version the recommended fabric would be oilcloth or ripstop nylon.
This PDF sewing pattern is designed to fit 14-14.5 inch dolls such as Hearts For Hearts Girls® and WellieWishers™.

I had already made the Oxford Square Coat for 18" dolls, so I knew this would be just as good. The pattern was very easy to follow and took only a couple or so hours to make up. I wanted a coat that would make a good raincoat and this one with the hood was perfect. The raglan sleeves make it easier for beginning sewists. Mine was made using PUL fabric and the hood was lined with a matching cotton canvas. I did make a couple of adjustments, I omitted the grosgrain ribbon along the hood join by sandwiching the seam under the lining. I also added a bit of hook and loop tape to the pocket flaps and used kam snaps for the front closure. There is sufficient room in the coat for your doll to wear her winter clothes under her coat. I am already planning to make a few more of these.
Loved this coat pattern. Pattern instructions were pretty straight forward. Toughest challenge was finding 5/8 inch toggle buttons for the front. FYI. I finally came across some natural wood toggle buttons at my HOBBY LOBBY. Painted them black to go with my chosen fabric.
