Flossie Potter's COLONIAL ACCESSORIES are a Revolutionary way to complete your 1700s boy and girl outfits. The unisex leather shoes with fold-down tongue and strap with a buckle are the perfect shoe to be worn with a gown or with breeches and stockings.
The tricorn hat was worn by military and civilians alike. This doll-sized version fits snugly, and the sides and back actually can be shaped for unique looks.
The pattern also has a bonus for knitters! Instructions for changes to Flossie Potter's DOLL SOCKS TRIO show you how to make men's thigh-high stockings. A separate insole is included in the pattern which is wider to accommodate hand-made socks.
Pair these accessories with Flossie Potter's SISTERS dress pattern and soon-to-be-released COLONIAL FARM BOY & COLONIAL GENTLEMAN pattern to complete your ensembles.
This PDF sewing pattern has 14 pages of step-by-step assembly instructions with full-color illustrations, 4 pages of printable summary instructions (to save on printer ink!), and 3 pages of pattern pieces.
