Have your WellieWishers™ and Hearts for Hearts Girls® dolls been shivering and shaking with cold? Now you can warm them up with the Fog Chaser Coat from Forever 18 Inches! The coat features simple lines with just enough detail to satisfy vinyl fashionistas and their human friends, and an unlined skirt to streamline the sewing process. The coat has been sized to fit over doll clothing with short fitted sleeves for authentic play. Features include three design options: a hooded coat with a gathered skirt and rolled cuffs, a coat with a collar, and a pleated alternative that allows the use of slightly heavier fabrics. All coat bodices and sleeves are fully lined, and attach to an unlined skirt. The front closes with button-covered snaps. Make your own customized version by mixing the interchangeable hood, collar, gathers, or pleats. Cuffs can also be added by choosing the longer sleeve length. What are you waiting for? Sew a coat or two up now--your dolls want to run outside and play!

I really like your patterns - the directions are complete and concise, which is not always true of many down loaded patterns. I will certainly purchase again
I had fun making this coat. It was a bit challenging for me, but the outcome was worth it. I have actually made two of them. I love the lining technique, only wished it was fully lined. However, I think it may be too bulky with a full lining. It fits well over a sundress, but not over a dress with sleeves.
Adorable coat but it claims to be sized to fit over clothes. I found it to be rather tight over a simple dress. Pieces did fit together well and the instructions were easy to follow.
I think this is the first pattern I have sewn for this scale. I wasn't excited to have to sew something so small. However, I was pleasantly surprised at how well this went together. I had no trouble sewing the pieces on this one. I am amazed that the pattern has so many design features for this scale. It has a great collar, bodice, and cuffs, and there are a few different options for the skirt portion. Karen uses a great method for lining the coat - be sure to watch the referenced video if you've never done this before. I can't wait until she offers this one for 18" dolls, too.
