The denim jacket pattern for an 18" doll is a very good design and nearly perfect in every way. The instructions for making flat fell seams are good. The pieces are designed to fit together very well. The final product looks exactly like a miniature blue jean jacket. The only incorrect step is #15. The photo is correct, but the instructions don't describe what is in the photo. In addition, there are two back tab pattern pieces, but there are no instructions for sewing them on the waistband. Even with these minor quibbles, I am very happy with this little jacket.
Hi Judy! Glad to hear you liked this pattern :) and thanks for sharing the picture, it turned out so cute! I just wanted to clarify that the instructions on page #17 show how to both sew the tabs and add them to the waistband on the jacket (maybe that page was misplaced).
Instructions are fantastic and easy to follow. The jacket is absolutely adorable...trying to find metal buttons to finish. Highly recommend. I also made a reduced size for this item and it came out great too. I used the denim from an old skirt I had that was very thin.
I absolutely LOVE this jacket pattern, I have made several as jackets and vests and two toned designed and I have modified the pattens as well, and love them all, they fit great and I get many compliments on them, lots of patten pieces but I love the detail and the final outcome!! one of my very favorite patterns.. if you have a jacket fetish like I do, this is a must have!!!!
I thoroughly enjoyed making this denim jacket. I've never done the felled seams before, and they were so easy. I had a lot of old denim jean scraps, but decided to follow the pattern advice and use thin cotton denim-look fabric. It was very easy to work with. I was especially pleased with the fact that even though I didn't do even, straight top stitching on the pockets, and barely got the bottom buttonhole on the fabric, it still looked great! I decided not to add the tabs at the waist. Also, for this boy doll, I printed the pattern at 103%, for a looser fit. I think the jacket would close if I made the buttonholes functional.
Instructions clear and well written as usual. I always have excellent results with any pattern written by this designer.
