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.

I would be happy with any othe coats/jackets EXCEPT the one with the zipper. It is impossible to buy a zipper the appropriate length here in Canada. It cost too much to order them for the US and so zippered jackets are out of the question for now.

When I showed my granddaughter the candidates for this week’s Freebie, she chose the Stratford Jacket. It reminds her of a photo of her great grandmother taken in the 50s that she loves admiring. Also, she enjoyed a trip to Stratford to see her first Shakespearean play last week and the female theatre attendees were wearing many tops that resemble the Stratford jacket so we voted for the Stratford jacket. Thank you Cinnamon for these Friday treats.

I love the Piccadilly PeaCoat and I tried to buy a ready-made one a long while ago, but it was out of stock. Now to see the pattern offered on this week’s Freebie Friday was such a thrill. It’s the proper jacket for my country’ s climate. My grandkids would love it for their dolls. Thanks for all your offers. Your generosity is appreciated.

I already have the Peleton or it would get my vote. BUT the Stratford Swing Coat gets my vote because it’s different than any style I have and is versatile. So many fabric choices to go casual or dress it up !

man, it seems like what ever one I like the best, is always in last place………….lol. I guess i’m good at picking out the underdog. I love the peleton jacket. I can see my granddaughters wearing something similar to junior high. I think those two 12 year olds would like that one and that’s why I voted for the peleton.

My vote is for the peacoat. We have cold and snow here in Utah and that coat seems like something warmer for the climate here in late fall. All are quite cute!!

Gosh they are all so lovely can’t decide. It is a tie between the swing coat and the peacoat. I also love the schoolboy blazer in last place would be peleton jacket, so whichever it is is fine with me. Thanks for all the free patterns.
