  1. […] just published a new pattern…the Off The Shoulder Tee from our Fall 2011 International Collection – Malibu Libby: MHS. We hope you enjoy it. It is a very simple pattern, and if you’re worried about using knit […]

  2. Yeah! I sold a ton of these little crop tops in the early 80’s when I owned a junior sportswear store. I messed around with designing one for the dolls and just couldn’t get the fit right. I’m so thrilled to have this fun pattern.

    I have only been sewing for a month and i was able to easily make this top. it is adorable and fits just right. I used your tank top patterns to go under it, and together, it is so cute.

      Thanks for the feedback 🙂 It’s fun to hear that it was easy for you to make, I’d love to see it…. you can post pic’s on our facebook page if you want to share it.


  5. Molly says:

    I love your doll clothing, and I was wondering if you would give me permission to make videos on how to sew them. I would not show the pattern pieces, so it would be like if they had the clothing pattern and they wanted to see a video on how to sew it they could.

  6. Molly says:

    Yes, they will be on my youtube channel. My channel name is agletitshine.

  7. Reece says:

    I hope to partner with Liberty Jane soon. I love sewing and want to earn money through doll clothes. This, the dress form, and the Oxford jacket are at the top of my to-do-sewing list.
