Lee & Pearl™ are thrilled to present a collection of doll uniform separates and hat patterns, giving you ultimate mix-and-match flexibility for all your active, adventuresome 18 inch boy or girl dolls — at a significant discount from the separately purchased pattern prices!

***

This unique bundle includes THREE of our most amazingly realistic patterns — Pattern 1010: Army Combat Uniform Bundle for 18 Inch Dolls; Pattern 1006: Patrol Cap for 18 Inch Dolls; and Pattern 1007: Bush Hat or "Boonie" for 18 Inch Dolls.

With these three patterns, you can make a ready-for-duty army uniform wardrobe for your doll — or mix-and-match civilian versions of the jacket, hats, pants and t-shirt made out of shirtings and plaids or any pretty calicos or prints you like!

***

PATTERN 1010: ARMY COMBAT UNIFORM BUNDLE FOR 18 INCH DOLLS produces a perfect doll-scale replica of the modern Army Combat Uniform (ACU), the official battle uniform of the United States Army since 2004.

To honor the men and women who wear this uniform in real life, we worked to get the details exactly right. Just like the real thing, our SHIRT JACKET features a separating zipper and Mandarin collar tab closure, easy-access angled chest and sleeve pockets, a back bellows for mobility, tab closure sleeve cuffs and detachable name/branch/rank and flag patches with recommendations for adding lettering and images to the patches.

The CARGO PANTS feature a front fly opening, belt loops, easy-access angled above-knee pockets, ankle cargo pockets and drawstring hems. The SHORT SLEEVE T-SHIRT features a lie-flat collar — and the HELMET COVER fits snugly and reversibly on a variety of separately purchased helmets. We have even included directions for modifying the helmet cover pattern for a perfect fit on whatever helmet you already own.

Use PATTERN 1006: PATROL CAP FOR 18 INCH DOLLS to create straight-sided fabric caps with neat flat tops. Versions of this cap have been worn in the U.S. military since the 1940s — and they've become a popular casual style as well.

Our fully-lined version looks adorable made in anything from camo prints and khaki to pretty cottons and tailored twills. Though your doll will love to wear it tipped back on the head at a jaunty angle, he or she might also appreciate the traditional design, in which the raised center back allows the hat to be worn with the top absolutely flat and parallel to the ground — an impressive parade-ground look for any aspiring 18 inch grunt.

***

Our PATTERN 1007: BUSH HAT FOR 18 INCH DOLLS — or "Boonie" as it's affectionately called — is a fabric hat with a flat crown and brim. First worn by Australian soldiers during the First and Second World Wars, the dashing Boonie soon became popular with American soldiers as well, and remains popular today.

Like the military-issue originals, our Boonie pattern hats can be accessorized with eyelet vents, an adjustable chin strap for stability and twill tape "branch loops" to hold camouflaging vegetation. Our hat can be worn with the brim down in soft, floppy curves, or pulled up to hug the sides of the crown for a rakish profile. You can even attach one side of the brim to the crown with a small snap for an authentic Down Under look.

Of course, your 18 doll friends won't have to enlist to wear this hat! On the beach, in the woods, at summer camp, on a photo safari, at a favorite fishing spot — or even just lounging around the yard — this hat looks great on every doll and in just about any ordinary cotton fabric you can find.

Our Boonie's brim features spiral topstitching and a neat bias tape edge. The crown is fully lined with separate, ever-so-slightly smaller lining patterns for a perfect fit. The adjustable chin strap is easy to make with purchased cord, or you can follow our directions to make your own cord out of embroidery floss. We've even included directions for making a bi-colored cord for a perfect color-coordinated look!
