The Liberty Jane® Kings Canyon Moto Vest designed to fit 18 inch dolls is the latest addition to the Outback Libby Collection! This darling hooded vest combines the spunky styling of a moto jacket with the casualness of a hoodie. Design features for this fully lined vest include: double breasted moto styling with functioning buttons, trendy raw edge trim around the armhole, and a sporty knit hood. The vest is designed to have a loose fit and can be easily worn over a variety of other clothing items. It will also fit a variety of 18 inch dolls, including the larger pre-Mattel AG dolls!
Suggested fabrics in this PDF sewing pattern include cotton twill, linen, denim, canvas, faux leather or suede. The knit hood works best in a mid-weight knit like french terry, sweatshirt fleece, cotton rib or jersey. A printed cotton is a fun way to add a little ‘surprise and delight’ to the lining. Rayon and poly linings also work well.

I really liked this pattern. The instructions were well written and pictures made it easy to follow. I made this vest from recycled denim jeans and a thick knit fabric. The denim sewed up pretty well, and I was pleased with the results. I made working buttonholes. The vest sizing allows for a shirt to be worn underneath and still button up. I would like to make a couple more in different fabrics. When I trimmed the armhole bias, I used pinking shears, which made it very easy to fray the edges.
Easy to construct and easy to adapt.
This is such a great pattern! Simple to make and the pattern instructions were clear and easy to follow. The vest fit perfectly and looks wonderful. I would highly recommend this pattern. You won't be disappointed.
This vest is so cute and fits the doll so well. It's lots of fun to make, also!
