A modern button front jumper with 1960’s flair - The Liberty Jane® Genoa Jumper, designed to fit 18 inch dolls such as American Girl® and Tonner My Imagination, includes design details such as: A fully lined dress with all seams enclosed, Deep V front, Front Button Opening*, and Optional pleated patch pockets. The jumper is designed to be worn over a variety of tops. In the example images we’ve paired the jumper with a mock turtleneck and 3/4 length sleeve t-shirt from the LJ T-Shirt Variations Pattern, a grey sweater made from the LJ Cropped Sweater pattern, and tights made using the LJ Leggings pattern.
The finished length of the dress is mid-upper thigh, which looks great worn over tights or leggings. For a more modest look you can easily modify the length of the dress by simply adding 1-2 inches to the length of the front and back pieces.
*(If desired, snaps or hook and loop tape can be used under non-functional buttons.)
Dolls pictured on cover are an 18" Deluxe Tonner My Imagination doll (with a custom wig) and an 18" American Girl doll.
Suggested fabrics include: Wool, wool blends, boucle, suiting fabrics, woven cottons, and lightweight corduroy

This is a cute pattern, easy to sew however it is a little shorter than I like so I added 1/2 inch to the length. It is also a little snug in the hips when worn over the 3/4 length sleeve t shirt made from ponte knit. Next time I will add about 1/8 inch to the sides when I cut it out or use a thinner knit for the top. It definitely would need some adjusting for the older plumper dolls.
On my first attempt to make this I was using corduroy with a lining and could not get turned through the shoulder seams, But I did a little adjustment on the pattern and they are working out great now. It is a pretty easy pattern minus the lining.
I resized this pattern down 85% to make for My Friend Mandy doll and it is so cute! It took less than an hour to make from start to finish. Great addition to my doll's wardrobe!
This is a very quick pattern to sew and the instructions are well written.
