NOTE: This listing includes ALL THREE DOLL SIZES for a REDUCED BUNDLE PRICE. This pattern is also available separately in each size.


When designing this pattern for a unisex LAB COAT we researched real-life STEM wear and found that modern lab coats feature all kinds of stylish new features — like the inverse pleat we used to fit the back, and the angled lower pockets that we spotted in a fashionable medical layout. We also included just-like-the-real-thing details like faced lapels, a button (or snap) front closure and a neatly stitched fabric tab in back to control the extra fullness — because real-world scientists can't have loose, flapping belts in labs full of glassware!

Then we added a couture feature that you're unlikely to see on any other mass-market pattern — a curved back yoke seam that invisibly builds in shape, allowing the coat to fit smoothly over rounded doll shoulders.

That's the kind of tailoring detail you might find in a real coat pattern, so we also included directions to transform the lab coat into a cinched-waist UNLINED COAT or raincoat, using your choice of fabric and contrasting lapels. You can even make a high fashion SILK ORGANZA coat using silk fabric kits from Lee & Pearl. With the same comfortable, slightly wide-set shoulders and relaxed sleeve opening as the lab versions, these pretty coats are great for layering.

And finally, because we don't want anyone actually blinded with science, we've included patterns and directions to make doll-scale clear vinyl SAFETY GOGGLES — the perfect science lab accessory craft.


This package includes patterns and directions for 18 inch American Girl®-sized dolls, 16 inch slender-bodied A Girl for All Time® dolls, and 14 1/2 inch Wellie Wishers® and similar dolls.

We value our reputation for perfect fit, so we didn't just re-scale one pattern to make the different sizes. Rather, we drafted each size separately to suit each doll's unique proportions. For instance, we added maximum roundness to the curved yoke seams for the well-padded American Girl shoulders, and more gentle curves for the molded plastic A Girl for All Time dolls and Wellie Wishers.


The Unisex Lab Coat (or Unlined Coat) is rated EASY / INTERMEDIATE for topstitching on small pieces, turned facings and curved set-in sleeve seams.

The Safety Goggles are rated INTERMEDIATE for work with vinyl and vinyl glue, which should only be used by adults in a well-ventilated area, or while wearing a properly-rated respirator.
