Introducing Lee & Pearl Pattern 1964: Darling Doris 1960s Ladies' Suit for 18 Inch Dolls!

Introducing Lee & Pearl Pattern 1964: Darling Doris 1960s Ladies’ Suit for 18 Inch Dolls. Our American Girl looks super-chic in this three piece ensemble, which includes a ladylike fitted top, a knee-length pencil skirt and an adorable swing jacket with a shawl collar, in-seam pockets and a full lining. Find this charming new pattern in the Lee & Pearl Easy store at https://www.etsy.com/listing/563966589/lp-1964-darling-doris-1960s-ladies-suitWe're proud to introduce this charming retro suit pattern — our homage to sunny, sparkling '60s star Doris Day, and to all the stylish career gals of any era.

Unlike many other bubbly blonde stars, Doris rarely played a debutante or socialite. She was far more likely to put on a ladylike pastel suit and strike out as a professional woman — a magazine editor, ad exec, interior decorator or research scientist.

The sky's the limit for any doll wearing our Darling Doris suit!

Inspired by a vintage Vogue pattern from 1964, our THREE PIECE SUIT is chock full of high-fashion details like the shaped, shawl collar and full lining on the jacket, the curved waistband and neat kick pleat on the skirt and the curved seams extending into cap sleeves on the top.

But don't worry — it's still a Lee & Pearl pattern, so we'll walk you step-by-step through every detail, with photo illustrated directions and guaranteed-to-fit-together, computer-drafted pattern pieces that make even couture construction as easy as possible.

This new pattern is now available in our ETSY STORE — and we're so excited that we are offering it at a special NEW RELEASE SALE PRICE of $8.99 for two weeks only. After October 29, 2017, the price will go back up to $10.99, so do not miss out.

Since launching our Etsy shop in 2013, Lee & Pearl have built a reputation for professionally drafted patterns that fit perfectly and go together easily, with amazing instructions. You will never find a mis-matched curve or vague direction in a Lee & Pearl pattern!Lee & Pearl Pattern 1073: Prima Ballerina Strapless Bodice and Classical Tutu with Basque and Panty for 18 Inch Dolls

Along with those reliable pieces, clear directions and carefully drafted measurements, Lee & Pearl are proud of our reputation for making patterns for one-of-a-kind doll outfits that look just like the real thing, whether it's a perfectly layered and balanced Classical tutu, or a skating dress with a skirt drafted to hang just like the real ones, or a slinky wrap dress indistinguishable from a '70s original, or a historically accurate (and deeply romantic) medieval gown, or a replica U.S. Army uniform that has to be seen — and made — to be believed, or... we could go on and on.
