Would you like to make a monk’s habit, St. Patrick-style costume, or biblical character’s costume for one of your Ken dolls? This is just the pattern for it!
As many of my regular followers know, I’m making a stop-motion video of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet with Barbie, Ken, and some other dolls. My website, ChellyWood.com offers free sewing patterns for each of the costumes I’ve designed for the “actors” in my play.
This is the pattern for Friar Laurence’s medieval-style hood, and this is one of two patterns for Friar Laurence’s robes; here’s the other robe pattern. You can also use these robes for making costumes for Biblical characters, like Joseph’s coat of many colors, Jesus and his disciples, Moses, or even St. Patrick! (Hooray for the Irish!) Here’s the tutorial showing you how to make his robes and hood.
And if you click here, you’ll be able to download a pattern that has the instructions for making Friar Laurence’s rope sandals. (My kids call them his “Jesus” sandals.)
Remember that all of my patterns are free to download and print on this page.
Just a couple more things to note: when you print my patterns, it’s always friendly and kind to like it on FB, tweet about it, and/or pin it to your Pinterest page. That way you’re helping to spread the word that these free, printable sewing patterns exist.
Also, you must enlarge my patterns to fit a full-sized piece of American computer paper (8.5 x 11 inches or 216 x 279 mm) before printing. My designs use a 1/4 inch seam (standard for fashion doll sewing projects). If you have any questions about piecing this costume together, feel free to contact me, using my “Submit a Question” form. I’m always happy to help!
