Lady in Grey coat and hat for American Girl Dolls

This very lady-like  outfit  is actually an adaptation of the similar coat that I made for Disney Animators  some time ago.  But now,  in combination with a timeless cloche style hat , it fit perfectly the American Girl doll  and her other 18 inch "siblings".

The design is based on the so-called Baby Doll style dresses that are known for their wide skirts and shortened close fitting bodices.

The coat is worked from bottom up, with front button closure, shaped armholes and neckline, and straight sleeves.  Transition from skirt to bodice is achieved by working multiple decreases on the transition row. 

The felted hat is what makes the whole out fit memorable and stylish.  I  am also planning to add the hat felting instructions  to the tutorial section here.
