Duster Driving Set 18" Doll Clothes

4 reviews   |  

In the early days of the automobile, the Duster was a wardrobe "must have".  Roads during this time were dusty when dry and turned muddy when it rained, so the Duster (previously worn on sooty trains) was called back into service -- but this time styling details were added so a lady could confidently "be seen" as she motored in public.
This double-breasted Duster Driving Set PDF pattern, by Flossie Potter, features oodles of tiny buttons, piping trim wherever possible, and pleats in the back princess seams to accommodate even the fullest skirt.  One side of the Duster can be worn open to showcase a velvet facing.
But that's not all – this pattern also includes instructions for the tiny goggles and gloves!

-Sewing machine with a zipper foot
-Serger is helpful
-2/3 yd (45-in wide) thin fabric*

Vintage Driving Outfit

Only need a small vintage car to make this outfit complete. Enjoyed making it so much. I recommend taking your time with this outfit as the pieces are quite small. I chose to handsew the goggles and gloves rather than use machine. I love this duster coat.

Duster Driving for 18" Doll

The Coat set a wonderful pattern. I enjoyed making. I could not find the trim so my sister is crocheting a trim for me. I hope she finish the trim soon. You will enjoy making the set as it may send you to think about history of the past in fashion. Enjoy. Marilyn
