Pioneer Boy 18" Doll Clothes

6 reviews   |  

Pioneer boys who took part in America's westward expansion dressed like their fathers, in loose-fitting clothing sewn from sturdy materials like homespun, twill, or denim. This three-piece ensemble is suitable for American boys, ages 10 and up, from the 1830s through the 1860s.
With this PDF pattern, you can make a shirt, trousers and cap for your 18" boy doll.  The boy's work shirt has a one-piece collar with stand, button front placket, dropped shoulders, and full sleeves gathered to fitted cuffs.  The boot-cut trousers have a high waist, working front pockets, faux front fly, and top-stitching detail.  The Y-back suspenders have faux-suede tabs that button onto the trousers.  The bonus newsboy cap has a paneled crown topped with a fabric-covered button.

Pioneer Boy

I was concerned about the suspenders but went ahead and purchased the pattern. So glad I did. Suspenders are quite easy as well as the rest of the outfit. Granddaughter loves it.


Pioneer Boy

Makes an adorable little pioneer boy outfit. Well written instructions, and it fits quite nicely. The tiny pieces for the suspenders are a bit fiddly, but well worth the effort!

Pioneer Boy pattern

The pattern created a really nice outfit with lots of details including pockets, great hat and suspenders. Very easy- to -follow instructions! Thank you. So very nice to sew special outfits for my granddaughter's American Girl Boy doll.
