#DIY Liv Doll Jake Clothes and GI Joe Clothes @ ChellyWood.com

Need a fancy collared shirt that fits most fashion dolls and action figures? This male fashion doll shirt pattern will fit Ken dolls, the Liv Doll called Jake (from Spin Master), and even those powerful-fisted GI Joe dolls! If you need the pattern, just go back to yesterday’s post or visit my Free Doll Clothes Patterns page and look under “Doll Clothes for Male 12.5 inch or 317.5 mm/32 cm Fashion Dolls (like Ken).”

If you’re wondering why I make patterns and tutorials without charging a fee, please visit the “Chelly’s Books” page, and that should explain my general motivations.

  1. I can see how the front and back go together, and the hemming at the end, but the middle where you’re supposed to fit that huge sleeve into the small arch made by the front and back coming together, I can’t see how that works either from your video or by looking at the pieces of the paper pattern I cut out.

    1. I gather my sleeves, which is why you’ll see that I attach one underarm, then the second underarm, leaving the seam at the shoulder open for a gather.

      With male dolls, sometimes I use two pleats instead of a gather, for a more masculine look at the shoulder-connecting point of the sleeve.

      It may help to look at one of my other male doll shirt videos. Try the video for the GI Joe red gingham shirt. I think that video has some pretty clear footage of the sleeve attachment.

      1. This may help. The tuxedo jacket spelled the steps out more, but because it was black it was almost impossible to see clearly. The shirt, being white, would have been easier to see, but you assumed we knew what the steps would look like and didn’t show as many of them. I’ve hemmed things and replaced buttons. That is pretty much my level of experience. So I really need more to work with. I am trying to make a little flannel shirt ornament for my girlfriend for her tree. So there will be lots of hemming in addition to trying to fit a big sleeve into a small hole. I’ll look at the video. Thanks!

      2. Yes, I’ve heard other people say that black fabric is not ideal for tutorials for the same reason. I haven’t been using black fabrics for the past couple of years, for this reason.

        I’ll accept your challenge and update these Ken clothes tutorials as soon as I get a chance.

        Thank you for the feedback!
