    I just finished the jean jacket, and is it CUTE! Many pieces, but not difficult to put together because of the very well-organized, clear-cut directions.

    Huge Kudos to you, Cinnamon! Will post the results soon on Facebook 🙂

    • Ellie says:

      That’s not very nice, if you don’t like the pattern, don’t buy it, there’s no reason to be rude about it.

  12. Ginger says:

    OMG! I purchased this pattern and made the denim jacket last night! It turned out sooooo cute! Great pattern! It fits the doll really well! And yes, I hand sewed all of the buttons on! My granddaughter is going to love it! Thanks for a fabulous pattern!

  13. Sandra says:

    Jacket is cute and was very easy to put together, but when I attempted to sew on the waistband, it was not long enough. Did I do something wrong, or is this a complaint you’ve had from other sewers? Thanks.

    • Shea says:

      I actually had this same problem, too. It was a good inch short. I wondered if I had done something wrong, since the rest of the pattern went together perfectly.

  14. amie says:

    I’d love to see this made in turquoise color using corduroy fabric.

  15. Brittbritt says:

    I would love to see this in lime green denim!!!

  16. Becky says:

    I’d love to see this made in hot pink denim with floral and heart applique.

  17. Jody Kimmel says:

    I would like to see this made in a hot pink corduroy with some sequins.

  18. Madison says:

    I love it!! I have a jacket that looks just like it.

  19. liz says:

    bought pattern and while sewing some pattern pieces were too small. did i do something wrong while cutting. has anyone else said this

    • Cinnamon & Team LJC says:

      Hi Liz, I’m not sure I understand. Did the completed jacket turn out too small or the pieces didn’t work together? I’m happy to help you get it figured out, it sounds like the print settigns may be off.

  20. Linda says:

    I just finished the jacket last week and also had a problem with the waistband. It was about three inches too short. I’ll definitely make this jacket again but first make the necessary adjustments.

    • Cinnamon & Team LJC says:

      Hi Linda, Sorry to hear this, but it sounds like either the instructions were not followed correctly of or the pieces were printed out at the wrong size. There really isn’t a way that the wsitband can be 3 inches too short. You can email me directly and I’m happy to help you figure it out 🙂

  21. Shea says:

    I replied to another commenter above, but I also had issues with the waistband being too short to match the rest of the jacket. I know it was printed at the correct size. It was a good inch or so short. Everything else about the jacket worked perfectly and I LOVE it, but I did want to give that feedback since it looks like I’m the third person here to report an issue with the waistband length.

    • Cinnamon LJC says:

      HI Shea, Sorry to hear this, but I can assure you the pattern is sized properly and the measurement is correct. The only issue I can think might be occuring is the the pattern is being cut at the larger outline for the flat fell seams but is not being sewn at the larger seam allowances – possibly? Does your jacket fit like the one in the cover image or is it looser/bigger? You can email me directly, and send me a pic of your jacket and I can help you figure out the issue 🙂


  22. Jessica says:

    I just wanted to thank you guys. I love Liberty Jane more than I have ever loved an outfit from American Girl. You have saved me a TON of money while getting something ever better than AG! I check this website everyday for patterns from your liberty Jane brand. Thanks so much for the quality and everything!

  23. Jazzie says:

    Incredibly detailed and a gorgeous result…. I got rave comments on this jacket all over the place, both friends, family, and fellow American Girl lovers. Super easy to follow, and it doesn’t even seem like a medium pattern, other than all the pattern pieces. A PERFECT fit, not too tight and not too loose. Had loads of fun making this adorable jackets, and can’t wait to make more to sell on my Etsy and to make as a gift for years to come.

    • Jazzie says:

      I also made this in just half an hour compared to my other projects, and the pieces went together perfectly. Even easier than making a doll t-shirt, actually! 😀

  24. cindi perron says:

    cinnamon, i thought i read sometime earlier this year that you were going to be publishing the pattern for that bomber jacket that was worn over the woomera dress. is that still in the plans? 🙂

  25. sam says:


    I just finished the denim jacket and I love it.
    It’s a very great pattern.

    But I also had a problem with the waisband.
    It was (like in other comments) good an inch short.
    I printed everything out correctly. I cut it at the larger outline for the flat fell seams, and I was sewing it at the larger allowances.

    I put the paper pattern pieces together to see, if it was my mistake, and there also, the waistband was too small.

    Maybe you want to sheck this again.

    But still, I like the pattern very much!

  26. Bethany Bennett says:

    I have a question. The pattern jacket and samples seem to show that the jacket does NOT close in front. Is this accurate?
