The Liberty Jane® Boomerit Falls Jacket is straight out of the pages of the latest Outback Libby book: Mystery on Lightning Ridge! Libby may have moved to the middle of nowhere, but that doesn't mean she can't bring her fashion sense with her to the Australian Outback!
Mix a touch of femininity with a bit of military inspiration and you get this beautifully designed jacket! The design features princess seams sewn with rough edges, double topstitching throughout, front pockets, and a tiered back peplum frayed for that perfectly worn-in look. It is accented with lace-up cuffs, decorative or functional front buttons, and an overall worn-in finish. The jacket on the cover image is made with a soft brushed cotton and is fully lined with a brightly colored floral. Perfect for a day in the outback, Aussie style!
The pattern is designed to fit18-inch doll such as American Girl®.

Made this jacket for the first time, and I’m totally in love! While this probably deserves it’s “advanced” rating, it just takes a little patience to get it right. I love all the details - especially the ruffles in back and the laced cuffs. The instructions are very well written and easy to follow. I found the fit to be excellent - plenty of room to wear over a t-shirt, but still fitted for a good trim fit. I used a medium weight twill fabric, which was a great choice - enough body for a jacket, but not too heavy that it’s hard to get all the details in. Already planning another one in a very lightweight denim - because a girl can never have too many denim jackets!
Very satisfied with the price and quality of this pattern. Will buy more.
Just now making the jacket. So far it is looking pretty good! I do love all the seams and rough edges. I’m currently looking for a dress to go under the jacket and have chosen the 1930’s Ruffled Play Dress. I’m making two sets of these patterns for my two granddaughters. They love their dolls and the clothes I’ve been making. I guess next I’ll have to make shoes to go with the ensemble. The patterns have been just super to make and I’m enjoying them. Lots of ideas flow from each pattern I get from Pixiefaire. I’ve been making doll clothes for ever, started with my little Betsy Wetsy up thru all the Cabbage Patch dolls and now the 18” dolls. The designs you come up with are so special. Thanks Barb
