Uniquely styled and elegantly shaped, this is a sweet coat for your 18 inch doll like American Girl doll.
The A-line shaped coat is beautifully detailed with set-in sleeves, a small rectangular collar and button closure. The hemline also features decorative ribbing which looks like an embellishment and gives additional shaping to the coat. There are also round pockets for even more detail.
The hat made of a cozy faux fur yarn finishes off the whole ensemble. It feels really soft and the fur yarn is also used on the collar to tie it all together.
