    I tried to sew a pair of jeans for my third project with this pattern. All I ended up doing was wasting a ton of fabric. This pattern really is not beginner friendly. No waistband measurements. The pattern was a pain to use. I can't recommend this one. I had a more experienced seamstress look at this and they didn't feel that it was a good pattern for a beginner either. I'm still trying to finish my first pair of jeans, which did not come out right at all. Not a happy customer.

    • Courtney says:

      I actually bought this pattern (as a 12 year old beginner) and thought it was very easy. A tip is before you start cutting the pattern pieces and sewing, read through the whole booklet and make sure you know excactly what they are doing. Then you will know what will happen next. 🙂

  2. You Know Who! says:

    Hi Nevadagirl,

    Sorry to hear you're having trouble with it. We are happy to offer you a full refund. The wasteband measurements are written on the pattern page, next to the pocket pieces. Please email me directly at if you'd to discuss it further. We want to make sure we do everything we can help.

  3. Jenny Courter says:

    First let me say, I am a beginner with very little sewing experience. I purchased this pattern hoping that the previous review would prove untrue for me and I must say once I got to work on the project I found the directions to be quite clear. I had one question which was answered promptly via e-mail. I am THRILLED at the end results! I made an adorable pair of blue jeans for my daughter’s favorite doll. Thanks for a great pattern at a resaonable price! We’ll certainly be back for more!

  4. Lynette O. says:

    I like this pattern because of the pockets and the fit!!

  5. Kenna B. says:

    I love this pattern!! I do sew quite a bit and found the instructions clear and easy to follow. My poor husband has lost all his “grubby” jeans as I’ve had quite a bit of fun sewing jeans for the dolls…. including a mini pair of Levis!! I’ve also found it easy to modify for different fits like baggy, relaxed, etc.

  6. Beth G. says:

    This is my favorite LJ pattern. As soon as I saw that I could make jeans for my girls dolls I knew I needed to buy the pattern. I have made 3 pairs so far! I have another pair all cut up ready to be sewn. 🙂

  7. Christine P. says:

    Just downloaded this pattern. Working through it now. Love the look and the instructions are so clear and easy to follow. Can’t wait to see the finished product!

  8. Felicia says:

    My Favorite Pattern! This pattern takes my little girls American Girl from just a “doll” to a fashonista! She loves to dress her in the coolest trends…. this pattern has sooo many posibilities… but then, which Liberty Jane pattern doesn’t??!!

  9. Samantha says:

    I simply just adore this pattern!! My dolls look stunning in these classic Liberty Jane Clothing jeans!

  10. […] Here’s a great set of instructional pictures, from LJC Partner Donna – Sweetscraps, showing how to insert a real working zipper into the front of the Liberty Jane Jeans. […]

  11. Melissa says:

    This is still my favorite pattern. Probably because it was the first one I bought but I do love the results.

  12. aglover says:

    how different is this from the skinny jeans pattern?

  13. Bonnie says:

    I do love these jeans however I downloaded the regular jeans and the skinny jeans and made 2 pair before I realized that I didn’t change the (shrink to fit) to (None) on my printer. I went back to download them but I haven’t made them again yet using the proper sized pattern. I look forward to making them.

  14. Chantelle says:

    Have been using the LJ patterns to teach my girls how to sew. They’re so much easier than the Top 4 regular sewing patterns you get at the store, and the end result is much better. Thank you, Cinnamon, for making a product that encourages mom-daughter interaction. We have so much fun!

  15. Granny Sandy says:

    I thought this pattern was FREE for the Holiday weekend? I can`t get it ? BooHoo
    I just LUV ALL Ur patterns

  16. Mel says:

    The pattern says it’s $0.00, but then it’s $3.99 when you add to cart?

  17. Denise says:

    Same problem here, tried to get the “free” pattern, but it kept adding to the cart at $3.99. Let me know if you fix the problem, I’d love to have the pattern!

  18. Debbie says:

    I successfully downloaded and made a pair of shorts from the jean pattern you so graciously offered for FREE over the weekend. Thank You so much for offering this pattern, as I had attempted to make several pair on my own…having issues with too much sagging in the “caboose”! Your instructions were very easy to follow along with the pictures. What a blessing you are Cinnamon, I realize how much work goes into pattern making! Thank You again…may God continue to bless your work!

  19. Tiffany says:

    Glad you gave the updated waistband as a freebie. There is a way to make the waistband even more flatter than what you have shown. Cheers! Make more advanced patterns.

  20. Pam says:

    Would love to hear more about the updated waistband. I have the jeans pattern, but haven’t started making it yet. Where can I find the updated info? And Tiffany, can you let us know how you made the waistband even more flatter?? Thank you!!

  21. Nan Scott says:

    I bought both the skinnny jeans and the regular jeans. Missed out on the free weekend for the updated jeans pattern. I was merchanting at a convention. Do I still need to buy the new pattern, or is there someway I can download and upgrade for what I’ve already purchased.
    Thank you for your help.

  22. Chrisitne says:

    Do these jean have a zipper or velcro to stay on?

  23. Jason says:

    Hi Christine, The jeans have elastic in the waistband, they just pull on and off. No zipper and no velcro 🙂

  24. Chrisitne says:

    I just bought this pattern yesterday, made them with a light/medium weight stretch denim and they came out great. I was wondering before I try, has anyone make these using a cordoroy, and if so how large of a rib did you use?

  25. Marie says:

    I find the top too bulky too when I finished sewing it…I plan to sew another one and maybe lessen the width of the waist band… but still I love it…I posted a photo in my blog for the finished product

  26. […] Kit is finally available! This product has replaced denimolition, which I referenced in the Liberty Jane Jeans Pattern bonus: Distress and Destroy. I’ve included a link to the product on amazon, but you might be […]

  27. Kendie21 says:

    hi. i was thinking of an idea for clothing to make and… why not a winter puffy coat, or a football jersey? i would happily buy both of those. just an idea but please leave a comment back saying if u like these ideas. 🙂

  28. Heather says:

    This is my favorite pattern because it opened my eyes to dressing dolls with small clothing not doll clothing. I love the detail on this pattern, and my dolls look incredible in these jeans!! Thanks!

  29. Jennifer says:

    This is my favorite LJ pattern – I have made several pair in different shades of denim and also cords! So stinkin’ cute! 🙂

  30. Guinivere says:

    The jeans are definitely my favorite – a great staple in any doll’s wardrobe!

  31. Chris Walden says:

    This is my favority Liberty Jane pattern because they are so realistic looking and one can never have too many pairs of great fitting jeans!

    These jeans will go so well with every single top my doll has!

  37. Eileen Gainey says:

    I ordered and paid for this pattern yesterday and I haven’t received it yet. I ]s there a problem


  38. Red says:

    Hi Cinnamon,
    Thank you so much for the free patterns. I have ordered an Australian Girl Doll for my daughter’s 6th birthday gift for next month and it will be great to add a few tops, the hobo bag and some doll-sized money to what is a seriously expensive present for the cost of a few fabric scraps!

    I am going to purchase the jeans pattern, but could you please let me know the waist, hip and in-seam measurements as the Australian Girl Doll is 20″ tall, so I am expecting that I will need to alter your pattern to fit. I haven’t had time to make up the patterns I have so far (college assignments/exams), but I think the tops should be ok – jeans are a little less forgiving….

    Kind regards, Red <3

  39. fairydragon10 says:

    can you make this pattern with a different fabric than denim

  40. Susan says:

    I would like to see the LJ jeans made in gold lame. In fact, I think I’ll do it!

  41. Susan says:

    Regarding the waistband issues I read about on this blog: I’ve made several pairs of jeans with the boot cut jean pattern and have a suggestion that has has helped with the fit. I agree the bias cut denim makes for a thick waistband. I tried using scraps of satin blanket binding for the waistband. It comes in 4 inch width so I cut it down to 2.25 inches from the folded edge. Stitch the straight edge to the right side of the waist of the jeans. After inserting the elastic tuck one end in the other and zigzag stitch to close the opening.

  42. Natalie says:

    I bought this pattern and, I was wondering where does it show you how to make the shorts???

    • Cinnamon & Team LJC says:

      The shorts follow the same instructions as the pants, you just use the pattern piece to cut out for the shorter length. 🙂

  43. Celeste says:

    This pattern is so adorable! The jeans look great! My only problem with it is the jeans come off if the doll sits down, so not great for little girls. 🙁
    They do look really cute, though!

  44. stacy says:

    This pattern is really cute! Thank You Cinnamon, for making this pattern. I was going to buy a jean on ebay and it was 45 DOLLARS!!!!!! And my mom told me about your website so i went to it and i got it! I made it for Mckenna and she looks A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E!!!!

  45. Amanda says:

    The pattern is easy enough to follow if you’ve sewn before. I know someone who has never sewn before will likely have some problems with it. I will say that the jeans fit quite tightly. As an adult I had a hard time getting the jeans on the doll. I’m making another pair where I added an additional quarter inch to the outside legs. Hopefully, that extra bit combined with slightly smaller seams will make them easier to put on the doll.

  46. Lea says:

    VERY nice pattern. I bought and made these this afternoon. The pockets and all make them look SO great.

    A couple little notes – for “Maplelea” dolls, the back needs to be a smidge higher (1/2″ or so), and I’ll make the legs a bit looser next time just for ease of use.

    For “Our Generation” dolls – it’s quite difficult to get their wider feet through the legs of the jeans, so I’ll need to make the legs wider anyhow.

  47. carol says:

    please forward me my free patterns

  48. Anna-LIsa says:

    i bought this pattern a few days ago and i love it. at first i had some trouble attatching the waist band bit i worked it out. i love the step by step instructions.
    thank you for making such wonderfull patterns and instructions.
