  3. Eden Ava Couture says:

    Beautiful Cinnamon!!!!!

  4. Jenny says:

    Simply stunning — I can’t wait to make it! May be a bit of a challenge for me, but I love a challenge 😀

  5. Trish says:

    What fun! An intermediate pattern. Wonder where Cinnamon has been hibernating since intermediate patterns are what is wanted here.

  6. Tracy says:

    Want pants with waistband and belt loops with no elastic.

  7. Marcy says:

    Well it is about time LJC. You got more advanced outfits you can publish patterns from. Please get to it.

    • Cinnamon says:

      Wow. That hurts. I spent most of the summer figuring out this jacket concept. Then over 30 hours experimenting to make the first one. Then about 3 weeks putting the pattern guidebook together, with the help of Karin, who also spent an enormous amount of time on this project, and this is your comment?

      I realize publishing these guidebooks looks pretty simple. But they aren’t. They are incredibly complex to get right. And if you want to encourage me to do more, then mocking me in public is not the best choice.

      I’m not trying to be unkind, but you need to realize I’m a real person, and you’re criticizing something I just spent an enormous amount of my life working on.

      When I spend time responding to unkind & emotionally draining comments like this, it takes time away from productive activities, like pattern creation.

      I hope this reply helps you understand a bit about me, my work, and how your play a part.

      All the best,


  8. Minnie says:

    Agree, Cinnamon has been relying on her other designers to fill the the pattern pages. This is her business and expect more from her.

    • Cinnamon says:

      Hi Minnie,

      The other designers are not ‘mine’. They are working hard to build their own brands, and publish quality patterns. I’m honored to work with them.

      I appreciate your high expectations for me. But nobody has higher expectations for me than – me. We are trying to publish more patterns, and get faster at doing it. I hope you can appreciate the challenges associated with publishing a quality pattern.

      All the best,


  9. Sara says:

    All above are true. Guess LJC wants to waste time on youtube events and overpriced beginning sewing lessons.

    • Cinnamon says:

      Hi Sara,

      As it happens, this week is our 4 year anniversary on Youtube. Our design contests are some of the mostly responded-to-videos of ALL TIME on Youtube, bigger than any other company’s contests. We’re proud of that, and don’t appreciate it being called a waste of time. Through our contests we are teaching girls to design clothes, and think about fashion as creators, not just consumers. We are changing the way girls interact with Youtube content. Wasting time? Nah, not in our opinion.

      “Overpriced beginning sewing lessons”, I assume you’re referring to the Design Academy. It’s not actually sewing lessons. It’s a 1 month course, which teaches professional doll clothes design. The prior participants have raving positive comments about it.

      Our business is more complex than publishing patterns, and the cool part about it is – it’s our business – so we get to decide what we do, and how much of it we do. And inspiring young girls to become designers, and teaching people how to design – those are key elements of the business we want to create. We are going to do more of it in the future. If you want a ‘pure’ pattern publishing company to ‘like’, then maybe you need to find another company.

      I hope you can appreciate answers. I’m not trying to be unkind. But I’m a real person, and your comments are very personal to me.


  10. Doll says:

    Beautiful. Tongue is hanging out for more.

  11. Miranda says:

    Are you ever going to make a pattern for these shorts or the Lightning Ridge shirt and pants? I’m just curious. 😀


  12. Kathy says:

    You girls are being a little harsh. Cinnamon’s site fills a need for all sewers.I can sew at all levels and I enjoy the simple and the challenging projects as well.Just keep doing what you are doing – it is an awesome job !

  13. Laura says:


    I absolutely LOVE all of your patterns and all aspects of what you are doing. You have a lot of fans out there!! Keep up the amazing work! You definitely don’t deserve all the nasty comments.

  14. Cinnamon says:

    Thanks Laura,

    We are grateful for you!


  15. Cinnamon,
    I’m so sorry about these nasty comments! This is gorgeous, my favorite of the many beautiful outfits on your site 😀 I was scanning the comments (because I’m really excited, too for whenever you publish the shorts pattern) and I couldn’t believe the heartless, inane comments. Who are these people to expect anything from you? If they don’t like the way you do things, they can shop elsewhere, but I don’t think there is anywhere else you can buy 1) this cute of patterns, 2) in this scale 3) at this good a price.
    You do a beautiful job making all of these, especially at such a reasonable price and in such a straightforward way! I haven’t had the time or resources to sew things like this lately, but as soon as I do, I plan on buying many of your gorgeous patterns!
    Thank you and I hope people like that don’t discourage your great work!

    • Bibba says:

      “Who are these people to expect anything from you? ” Then why is Cinnamon trying so hard to sell outfits , patterns and have close to 20,000 fans on facebook. Your reasoning leads to she doesn’t need to do what she is doing and no fun for you Calise.

  16. Terry says:

    Keep up what you are doing because you are doing a fantastic job.
    As far as the mean and hateful comments…Well if they can do a better job let’s see them offer up a design either simple or intermediate or difficult with a design book with beautiful pictures. No I think not. They would rather just be critical and make hurtful comments.
    I love your designs and those of the other designers you work with. Thank you for all you hard work!

  17. Karen says:

    Cinnamon, I want to toss some roses at your feet. This is such a beautiful, carefully thought out pattern! Liberty Jane patterns are the best I’ve every used–and I have a large collection. The construction methods are clear and extremely clever, and nothing else I’ve used has ever come close to the beautiful fit that is one of the signatures of your work.

    Thank your for your generosity and commitment to excellence. Your work and attitude, I’m sure, are a reflection of the creator you love. “Be strong and take heart.”

  18. Fern says:

    I am shocked that some people would have the nerve to get on here and criticize Cinnamon for not getting exactly what they want, exactly when they want it. Not only is it mean, but it is also ignorant. I draft and design patterns for dolls as well, and I full well know the amount of work and effort that goes into each one. It isn’t like turning on a machine – and people who do not make patterns seem to confuse it as such. Cinnamon’s patterns are high quality, and her instructions very, very well done. I think people too quickly lose appreciation, and start believing they have the right to judge and jury.

    This pattern in incredible! I don’t have any modern AG dolls, or I would be dying to get it!

  19. Lynn says:

    LOVE Cinnamon’s patterns! Have a large tote filled with the printed patterns.

  20. Carol says:

    OH yea! Thxs for the jacket found the bubble shorts in a McCall’s pattern.

  21. Laura Kemner says:

    I would love to see this made in denim.

  22. Nichole strick says:

    I would love to see this made in fabric that is shiny silver!

  23. Maddy says:

    How do you get it to ‘puff’ out in the back? It looks kind of hard. I do plan buying this once I get better with sewing! 🙂

  24. stacy says:

    I cant belive people have the NERVE to say that to Cinnamon. Her designs are VERY high qulity and the people are just impatient.
    Cinnamon has a life you know she isnt a robot. She is a human being and we should be greatful for all the time and money she spent just for a pattern. Not trying to be mean at all

  25. stacy says:

    Cinnamon, i am sorry for hearing people saying this to you. They really should say sorry

  26. Dawn says:

    Question: What kind of fabric do you recommend for this? Looks like it might be something with a little stretch.

  27. Lori Marie says:

    Cinnamon, i have just discovered your patterns and I must say WOW!!! They are all so beautiful and very well thought out. Since i am a long time fan of sewing and well versed in the art of it I am extremely impressed with the quality of your patterns and the time and expertise that is put into all the guides. I look forward to making some new clothes for my daughter. Again Thank you for taking the time to inspire me.

  28. Brooke says:

    Perhaps the critical comments are made out of jealousy because those who made them do not have the talent to and expertise to make the wonderful designs and convert them to patterns. Have they priced commercial patterns recently? You are also to be applauded for publishing the cements. Many people do not have the courage to publish critical comments. Bravo, Cinnamon!


  29. Candice says:

    Hi, I want to make this outfit but I can’t find the shorts that goes along with the other.

  30. Candice says:

    I meant go along with the outfit

  31. Simply desire to say your article is as astounding. The clearness in your post is just spectacular and i can assume you’re an expert on this subject. Well with your permission allow me to grab your RSS feed to keep updated with forthcoming post. Thanks a million and please continue the enjoyable work.

  32. potencja says:

    Many of these new creations are about shape and texture as
    much as color and style. The Unitron website includes detailed description of the features and benefits from this product.
    The cable breaking system is also new feature added to the line of three wheel strollers.
