  3. Linda Blaker says:

    The Oxford Square Coat has been my favorite pattern since I first laid eyes on it! I’ve made it up (and sold it!) in wool, flannel, and cotton, and it’s PERFECT each and every time! Love this pattern! Class Act!!

  4. Kristen says:

    I love this coat!!!! I wish I could figure out how to make me one from this pattern!!! You are amazing!!!

  5. I love the original jeans pattern and hope to get this coat pattern next. They look so good together!

  6. Marissa says:

    This would have to be my favorite pattern, not only does it match well with various outfits and fabrics, this is EXACTLY like my jacket. It would be hilarious seeing my doll and I flaunting the same coat while walking down the street! 🙂

  7. […] knit fabrics. Layer the dress over a cute tank top for Summer or pair it with a cropped jacket or a wool coat and leggings for Fall. There are also simple instructions to use this pattern to make a top or a […]

    Does this Jacket have lining or facing, Button or zipper?

    • Cinnamon & Team LJC says:

      Hi Christine, The pattern is very simple. No lining, but it coutld easily be lined if you are familiar with how to do it. There are flaps on the front, but no buttons or zippers. You could easily add buttons, but there are not placement guidelines for them.

    I’m a new American Girl Mom and I’m so glad to find Liberty Jane and all the wonderful patterns available, so many great pieces to choose from. This is coat is near the top of my list as a “must have”, I love the modern style presented in, what seems to be, a very easy to sew pattern. Thanks!!

  10. Elle says:

    Hi i adore this outfit! thoogh im not sure i will be able to make it . but i will try!

  11. Judi says:

    Can this pattern be used for the BFC Ink dolls? If so, how?

  12. Miranda says:

    This is a REALLY cute coat! I like this pattern because if anyone DID make a custom boy AG doll, they could wear the coat, too! Also, it seems pretty easy to add and subtract the number of pockets, remover the hood, or shorten the jacket. The pattern is just so versatile! 😀


  13. Monica says:

    my daughter made this by herself it was easy to follw and the coat turned out great

  14. Madelineluvsyew says:

    Really love this.Gonna use it for Katniss’s hunting coat.Love love love love love love love love………LOVE.

  15. Lauren says:

    Would you recommend this for my daughter? She is twelve.

    • Cinnamon & Team LJC says:

      Sure, if she has a baisc knowledge of sewing. This jacket is easier than most because the sleevea have straight seams, not curved in a circle.

  16. Charlotte says:

    how much fabric does this need? i have some left over black cotton knit fabric at about 27 1/2 inch by 19 inch. is that enough?

  17. Holly says:

    I’d love to see this in a burgandy velveteen.

  18. Diane Lampshire says:

    I bought the “Oxford Square” pattern and and made it out of corduroy, the coat could not even reach to the other side of my American Girl doll. I think the pattern needs to be re cked. I love your patterns and was very disapointed in this one. The seams were as narrow as I could possably make them and still I could not get it to reach to the dolls other arm.

  19. Lauren says:

    I would like to buy this, but I want to know what fabric this is made from, because I don’t want to go to the store to get it, can anybody tell me what fabric is used in this?

  20. Elle says:

    Can you make this pattern into a raincoat?

  21. Janise says:

    Oh my, have to add this pattern to our list! My daughter just got her first American Girl doll and she keeps saying “mommy, look at this one – can you sew this one too..pretty please”. Needless to say, this is what my weekend will be all about. Thanks for the great patterns.

  22. Gabrielle Mauerman says:

    This pattern was a joy to sew. The finished product was perfect. I sewed it out of wool as well as a synthetic fabric and both turned out great. The directions and finishing touches turn out a very professional (read “trade manufactured for people”) product.

  23. Sammi says:

    I’m about to buy this pattern! Can’t wait to sew it!

  24. Scout says:

    So it seems like this pattern is very easy. Is it? I’ve made some of you other clothes and they were super easy (example: skinny jeans) is this one just as easy? thanks!

  25. Jazzie says:

    So adorable, can’t WAIT to get it. Love that its not curved sleeves, makes it all the much easier! 😀

  26. Pam says:

    I am totally disappointed in this pattern. The hood does not fit the jacket. Poorly designed and although very cute, I am very disappointed.
