This pattern, from My Sunshine Dolls, was inspired by two incredible female pioneers in aviation, Amelia Earhart and Bessie Coleman. Pattern includes full-color photographs and step-by-step directions to make this adorable 23-inch cloth aviator doll wearing an aviator jacket and lace-up boots. It also includes removable aviator pants, hat, goggles and scarf. Jacket, boots, hat and goggles look best using a faux leather or faux suede fabric, making it look more realistic. Sewing with faux leather can be tricky, so I recommend using a leather roller presser foot and lengthening the stitches. Variations are given for the fur collar or the faux leather collar.
This pattern is the first in a series of Women in History patterns that celebrate the strong, brave women who have been inspirations to all women. I hope that these dolls will inspire young girls everywhere to go for what they want!
