Here is a sneak peek at the up coming Thimbles and Acorns pattern!

This time, I am trying something completely different.... as the mother of four boys it was inevitable that I would have to do something for them.

During the Civil War it was not uncommon for boys as young as 12 years of age to enlist as drummer boys. Though they weren't technically soldiers, they were still close to the battle lines and often took up arms when battles became heated. This uniform is patterned after the standard pants and sack coat issued to enlisted men and is the same style worn by Johnny Clem, who at 9 years of age became the youngest soldier of the Civil War... actually, of any American war. I included the sergeants stripes on the sleeves which Johnny earned at the age of 12 and navy blue infantry stripes on each pant leg.

This is one of only two uniforms I will be selling before releasing the pattern later this month. It was carefully researched and I paid close attention to detailing. The pants have a fly front with a small working silver button and two front pockets. The jacket features a unique pocket in the front that is accessed through the front placket. The pants and jacket are made of 100% wool flannel and the jacket is fully lined with unbleached muslin... just like the original.


This Uniform was fit on an older, thicker bodied 18 inch American Girl doll body, but the design adapts well to the newer , slimmer body sizes as well. The listing includes a sack coat, pants, belt, and a complimentary wood hanger (not pictured).

Constructions Details: All visible seam allowances are professionally finished with a serger. The hem of the jacket lining, inside waistband of the pants, and the hem of the pants are hand stitched. The front of the coat closes with 4 small trouser buttons. Fabric for both the pants and the coat is 100% wool. The jacket is lined with 100% unbleached cotton muslin. The belt is Black leather.

***This uniform is made of wool and should only be dry cleaned when necessary****
