Blue Patsy Play Dress&Hat
This Effanbee Blue Patsy Play Dress&Hat are adapted from a 1933 pattern for Patsy Lou. The pattern was a give away by the McCall Co. as a promotion. The Effanbee dress and cloche hat are available in several sizes for your Effanbee Patsy family dolls. They are likely to fit other similar dolls of the era also. The 100% cotton fabrics used for these dresses are reproduced from a 30’s classic print. The dress closes in the back with two buttons, and the cloche hat is trimmed with a self-fabric ruffled rose. The smallest sizes may have square snaps rather than buttons in the back. The dress bodice and cloche hat are lined too.
The Patsy Joan doll came in two different sizes. In the 1930s Patsy Joan’s hair was styled in a short bob just like the other Patsy family dolls and she was 16 inches tall. In 1946 Patsy Joan was issued as a 17-inch doll with molded curly hair and she was marked Effandbee on her back. Dresses and hats are available in both sizes.
