More About Each Pattern: 

 The Schoolboy Blazer Designed To Fit 18 Inch Dolls Such As American Girl: This darling knit schoolboy blazer PDF sewing pattern designed to fit 18 inch dolls such as American Girl® hits just the right fashion mark!  Looks great worn with your doll’s favorite denim jeans or dress it up with accessories. This blazer is unlined to keep things simple and reduce bulk when layering.  We've included instructions for the couture sewing technique of Hong Kong binding to finish off the edges of the interior seams in a beautiful way. Bind with a splash of color to give a little “surprise and delight” to the inside! This blazer features real buttons and button-hole closure, back vent and faux flap pockets. Recommended fabrics: double-sided knits, ponte and any other medium weight, stable knit. Finding the perfect fabric can be a lot of work! Be sure to check out our growing collection of Pixie Packs, hand selected by Cinnamon, which include a variety of fabrics and notions - perfect for sewing doll sized items!

The Stratford Swing Coat Designed To Fit 18 Inch Dolls Such As American Girl: Featured in the 2015 Euro Libby: Stratford outfit, this detailed swing coat designed to fit 18 inch dolls such as American Girl, is fully lined and features welt pockets, interesting geometric piecing, back pleats and a cute flounce. Mix the classic stylings of the swing coat with the on-trend vision of Liberty Jane and Voila! You get this beautiful designed jacket! Fabric choice is very important when making this coat as the back flounce needs a somewhat drapey fabric that will allow the subtle folds to form. Suggested fabrics include: lightweight wool, rayon/poly blends, suiting and a lightweight twill. The lining can be made from any poly or rayon lining fabric. We used a delicate cotton lawn print to add a little special treat to the inside of the jacket pictured. 

The Peleton Jacket Designed To Fit 18 Inch Dolls Such As American Girl: Get a fresh new look with the cropped motorcycle jacket featured in the Liberty Jane Spring 2014 Euro Libby Outfit: Peleton! Whether your doll is riding in France or shopping with friends, she will look fabulous in this trendy cropped jacket. Mixing tweed and lace gives the classic motorcycle jacket a fresh new twist. This fully lined jacket includes a separating zipper, epaulettes and lace accents. Try using a faux suede or leather for the collar to give it that trendy look. Suggested fabrics include lightweight tweed, linen, denim or faux leather. When choosing a lace fabric, be sure to double check the scale of the pattern so it’s not too big for the doll! 

The Piccadilly Peacoat Designed To Fit 18 Inch Dolls Such As American Girl: The Liberty Jane Euro Libby: Piccadilly Peacoat PDF Pattern will delight your 18 inch American Girl Doll! Your doll will be ready to jump on the London bus and head straight to Piccadilly Circus in this adorable fully lined peacoat. This is a classic with a twist - charming inset pleats along the back, finished with a belt. The double-breasted front features a row of functional buttons so your doll can wear her coat open or buttoned up. Decorative welt pockets run along topstitched princess seams. Cuffs are accented with two tiny buttons. Suggested fabrics include wool, wool blends, suiting type fabrics, corduroy or velveteen. We used a lightweight wool which tailors beautifully with a little steam from the iron. A rayon lining was used to line the coat but a poly lining would also work nicely. 

Take a look at each pattern:

I am impressed by the details and the sophistication of the pattern for the Stratford jacket you are so graciously offering us today. You really make beautiful, real professional patterns for dolls! The cut pocket is a nice detail, in that it is pretty much the same principle as a French buttonhole. A nice way to learn and practice, for those who have the patience to sew it. I am not sure I will ever make it, buy I very appreciate the quality of your work and your generosity! Thank you for everything! =:o)

Too bad more people are afraid of zippers. You can easily shorten them and that information is not readily available. Just pop off the top metal stop, and clip off the extra teeth with a pair of wire cutter pliers. Untwist the coil zippers to remove the teeth on a coil zipper. Put the stops back on the tops where you need them to be. It is sooooo easy!

Tough choice. They are all very nice. The blazer reminds me of the Annie Hall era; swing coat the 50’s and Pea Coat the 70s. I guess I will vote for the PeaCoat. I have been wanting to make one in the style of the Crissy dolls favorite for a long time.

Schoolboy Blazer, please! I know the Stratford coat appears to be winning right now, but I hate to say it, I think it looks a little dowdy for the age group the dolls are supposed to represent, and I’d rather not see it win. (sorry!)
