Your doll will be ready to jump on the London bus and head straight to Piccadilly Circus in this adorable fully lined peacoat. This is a classic with a twist - charming inset pleats along the back, finished with a belt.
The double-breasted front features a row of functional buttons so your doll can wear her coat open or buttoned up. Decorative welt pockets run along topstitched princess seams. Cuffs are accented with two tiny buttons.
Suggested fabrics for this PDF pattern include wool, wool blends, suiting type fabrics, corduroy or velveteen. We used a lightweight wool which tailors beautifully with a little steam from the iron. A rayon lining was used to line the coat but a poly lining would also work nicely.
-1/3 yard of lightweight wool type fabric
-1/4 yard lining fabric
-8 - 1/4" buttons
-2 or 4 - 1/8" buttons

This was the first pattern that I purchased and made from Pixie Faire / Liberty Jane Clothing. The instructions were clear, and overall, it came out exactly how I wanted it to. At the time of my making of the piece, my pattern for the BFC Ink version was incomplete. Of note: "Back Facing" (Pattern is missing this to be cut) "Side Front Lining" (Pattern is available for Side Front Lining, but only instructed to CUT 2 for 'outer fabric') "Lining Back" has "CUT 2" denoted, but second one is unnecessary. I was able to move forward in any case, and the final product looks great. Since my doll's measurements are close, but varied from the BFC Ink line, I made some minor adjustments to fit her.
My experience using all of these patterns is wonderful--they are very easy to use, including cutting them out, and have great directions. I bought this one, hoping it would fit A Girl for All Time, and it doesn't. That doesn't stop my leaving a very pleased review from a customer, though. It means that I'll have to do quite a lot of adjusting. Maybe it could be resized
Picadilly Peacoat for BFC Doll. I am really pleased. The coat is stunning and the directions easy to follow.
