Your Kidz N Cats® doll will be ready to have some fun in this versatile jacket. This PDF pattern includes many options: an unlined jacket with hood, lined jacket with hood or collar. There is an additional back gathering and a simplified version with less top stitching. This jacket can be made with a variety of fabrics.
Special Note - This PDF sewing pattern is designed to fit a Kidz N Cats Doll specifically and will not fit the standard 18 inch doll such as American Girl Doll. A KNC doll is 18 inches tall but has a much slimmer hard plastic body. You can see more info on our Doll Measurements page.

The design is what I needed, but I enlarged it. At this point it’s not complete, but so far its rather elegant as I’m making it with faux suede and faux snakeskin trim.
I have made two coats by this design with different fabrics and planning another one. Sewing requres attention and accuracy, but result worthes the effort. The only issue was to find zipper of needed size, but I found an easy way to make it shorted.
Wonderful pattern. I am very impressed with it and am extremely glad I bought it! Very highly recommended.
This jacket is a lot of fun to sew, I used to be afraid of zippers but the one in this jacket was so easy to put in. The jacket fits great and there are so many variations you can make using different materials and design elements.
