This Fur Vest for 18″ Doll Free Pattern is perfect for dressing dolly in winter.
With this step by step tutorial is simple to complete. Materials
small piece of faux fur or sherpa fleece. Do not use a fur that is too bulky since the doll’s vest is small!
small amount of lining fabric. I used a quilting cotton.
12″ narrow ribbon for tie
Cut 2 fronts, 1 back on fold of each – fur and lining fabric.
Cut 2 6″ pieces of ribbon for the ties.
Fur Vest for 18″ Doll Free Pattern Tutorial
With right sides facing, sew the back fur to the back lining at the neckline and armcyes.
Clip curves well.
Baste a piece of ribbon to the right side of the front fur, 1/4″ below the neckline as shown.
Sew front fur to front lining, right sides facing, along neckline and armscye. The ribbon is sandwiched between. Clip curves well.
Repeat with the second front. Turn fronts right side out.
Slide the front in between the lining and fur of the back. The front lining touches the back lining and the front fur touches the back fur. The fronts are right side out and the back is still wrong side out.
Line up the shoulder seams.
Stitch across the shoulder.
Pull the front through the back so now they are right sides out and attached at the shoulders.
Pin and stitch underarm seam of both lining and fur in one continuous seam, right sides facing.
Arrange vest with right sides facing. All the edges are now enclosed except for the front and bottom.
This part looks difficult, but you are simply lining up the raw edges of the fur and the lining, right sides facing, with the bulk of the vest sandwiched in between. Pin. Leave a 2″ opening along the bottom for turning and stitch. It may seem like a crumpled ball, but pull the vest through the opening you left and it will be assembled!
Hand stitch your turning opening shut.
