Lyn's Doll House Patterns L134; ©1982 (reprinted from original patterns, including 1907, 1908 and 1911 Ladies' Home Journal); Tiny Baby Layette, Years 1900-1930. Pattern and instructions to make antique and vintage style baby layette for 5-inch bisque baby doll. Cloak with attached hood is trimmed with soft lace, and it may be decorated with embroidery. Gown may be made from a handkerchief, and has a yoke that comes below the armscye, and a novel pointed plastron collar attached to neckline of yoke with lace binding. Skirt may be short, three-quarter or regulation length. All stitching must be done by hand, using a tiny needle, and fine thread. Petticoat is of princess style with back fullness. Hem is trimmed with a lace ruffle. Cap is made by attaching rows of lace to a lining, or it may be unlined. A frill of the lace could be used to frame the face. The Kimono is a simple design with the front, back and sleeves cut all in one. It opens down the front, and the seam allowance and hems are feather-stitched. If it is cut short it may be used for a Sacque; if made of a lightweight wool, it can be a Coat or Wrap. The same pattern may be used for a Nightgown if a placket is made at the neck, and if the hem has a drawstring. The Barrow Coat is a simple band with a flannel skirt. No diaper pattern is given, but it should be made of flannel, or birds-eye, in a triangle or rectangle shape.
