Recreate an enduring 17th century Pilgrim Boy with this meticulously designed pattern by Keepers Dolly Duds. This seven-piece ensemble which includes a felt hat, shirt, doublet, falling band (collar), breeches, stockings, and shoes, will literally outfit your doll from head to toe. The cone-shaped hat was the popular style of the time. The loosely fitting shirt is gathered into a front and back yoke with full sleeves. It fastens up the front and at the sleeve cuffs with small buttons. Worn over the shirt, the warm doublet features loosely fitted sleeves topped with a sleeve cap. The fitted bodice has a two-piece peplum at the waist and buttons down the front with a tight row of eight buttons. A neat little falling band ties on at the neckline adding a subtle decorative element that also protects the doublet from wear and tear. The full knee-length breeches cinch at the knee with ribbon ties and fasten at the waist with two small snaps. A row of tiny decorative buttons along the fly give it the look of an authentic button-fly. A simple pair of stockings and shoes complete this Pilgrim Boy's wardrobe. Pair this pattern up Keepers Dolly Duds Pretty Pilgrim (#KDD-06) to recreate a Pilgrim girl to accompany your boy.

The sleeveless dress is made from woven (non-stretch) fabrics and contains options for simple hemming or hemming-with-a-facing. The dress contains a simple bodice with a drop-waist skirt. Pockets can be added, while the back of the dress closes with hook and loop tape or snap fasteners. Clear instructions and photos are given for each step (along with shortcut instructions for those who prefer no photos). This “Meadow” pattern is primarily designed for the 6.5-inch (16.5cm) American Girl® Mini Doll. It may also fit similar-sized dolls.
