Women of History: Betsy Ross Bundle 18" Doll Clothes

2   |  

This PDF sewing pattern is a combo-pack of Flossie Potter's Betsy Ross trilogy: the "Shop Dress," "Shop Apron & Cap," and the "Betsy Ross Flag."

The shop dress is an everyday dress that Betsy would have worn while working in her upholstery shop. It has 18th century details such as a ruffled low neckline, pointed sleeves with ties, pointed bodice and side gathers. The simple shop apron would have kept the skirt portion of her dress clean, and she would have worn her cap when speaking with customers. The Betsy Ross Flag is the iconic early American flag with thirteen red and white stripes and a circle of thirteen white stars on a blue canton.  

These three patterns are available individually on Pixie Faire, or you can buy the bundle here to save.

Betsy Ross

The pattern instructions need a little more fleshing out or pictures. I have been sewing doll clothes for two years and the bodice of this dress was confusing, instruction wise. Very happy with end product though.

Wonderful Historic dress!

I have been wanting to do some revolutionary dresses. This was extra special ...Betsy Ross with the flag! The pattern was a freebie but had to have the flag bonnet and apron. Biggest challenge was the bonnet. Now that I did one, next one will be easier. If you are an experienced sewer sometimes you have to let go of what you know and follow what you are told and it all works out. First time I have sent a photo of finished outfit. I will be doing more Betsy Ross dresses
