This fun little jacket is actually a very simple design. That’s what makes it a great pattern to concentrate on working with plaids. This PDF sewing pattern includes a multi-page tutorial section on working with plaids. Special layout lines on each pattern piece help to ensure that plaids align correctly. The hip length, unlined style is designed to be worn open and has a flattering shape to compliment many outfits from dresses to jeans.
This jacket nicely compliments the Energy Dress, also by Dkinley Designs.
This pattern is designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl®.

I used this pattern to make a jacket for my granddaughter's American Doll, and the style is almost a perfect match to the one I used for the jacket I made for her. Directions were clear, pieces fit together perfectly, a great product. I cannot comment on the plaid, as mine was solid!
It was a good review of working with plaids. I like working with the pattern. Yes, I will recommend this pattern.
Although I did not use a plaid fabric, I am sure that it will go together just as beautifully in plaid. I made it to go with Soda Pop Street's Peplum dress, and it looks like they were made to go together. Love this pattern, and I'm sure I will use it again and again. I can see it as a riding jacket, too. I lined mine, but if you finish your seams nicely, it will be lovely. It went together smoothly and without a hitch! Thanks DK!
