The Liberty Jane® Tokyo Libby: Ginza Girl Coat is designed to fit 18 inch dolls such as American Girl®. As your doll strolls the street shopping, she is sure to turn heads in this beautiful coat and cape. This design features a fit and flare silhouette with a lace ruffled bustle inset. The sleeves have lace and ribbon trim with tiny bows to accent the cuffs. A velveteen or contrast collar is the perfect touch for this special coat. Both the coat and cape are fully lined. The Cape is fully removeable and features a contrast border.
This pattern features many couture details and sewing techniques - our favorite is the all in one coat and lining construction. It's shown in both the step by step photos as well as in the Sewing With Cinnamon Video - Ginza Girl Coat. Follow along as each and every step is shown in more detail!
Suggested fabrics include: lightweight worsted wool or wool blends, gabardine, suiting fabrics. We used a velveteen for our contrast fabric however a satin or
wool would also work nicely. The lining can be made from your favorite rayon or poly lining fabrics. The lace trim is ungathered trim and can be anywhere in width from 1” to 1 1/2”. Beautiful silk ribbons, if you can find them, work nicely on this coat as they fall gracefully down the front.

The pattern is so easy to follow. If you take your time it is easy to creat coat you will be proud of.
I used red linen fabric ,lined polka dot, with black lace trim All went well but had a bit of trouble getting sleeve cap to fit in. Once gathered it went nicely. Just a hair crooked on the lace but overall easy pattern. Chickened out with button holes. Not sure if I had one small enough. Will do velcro with buttons on top. Made wrap pleated skirt to match. Great grand daughters loved it.!!!! next time I will try buttonholes Thank you
I did have the video also, which helped with one portion of the construction; but on a whole I found it easier to make than I expected. I am donating it and a doll to a fair this weekend and I hope the response is positive. It was a fun project to make.
The first time I seen this pattern I knew I had to buy it and make a coat. The coat was beautiful when finished. A lot of fun to sew.
