This is the first of three free patterns I’m posting this week. You’ll find it easier to print this pattern if you click here, and follow the guidelines in my “How to Print Patterns” tutorial.
The third in this week’s series of free doll clothes patterns will be a brand-new pattern for my site: an easy-to-sew dinner jacket that fits male fashion dolls! Today’s pattern is actually a re-mastering of a previously posted pattern, which you can find easily if you visit my gallery page.
But please come back later this week to download the final free sewing pattern for the dinner jacket, plus watch the free tutorial showing how to make the dinner jacket.
Today’s pattern fits Spin Master Jake dolls, Mattel’s Fashionista Ken dolls, and Ever After High’s male dolls as well. The pants are a wee bit too tight in the waist for G.I. Joe dolls, but they’ll fit most male fashion dolls. The shirt does fit my G.I. Joe though.
Recently, some of my followers have wondered what motivates me to give my patterns away for free.
First of all, I’m a librarian by trade. Librarians love free stuff! We believe that the more a person knows, the more enriched their life will be. So it may sound kind of crazy, but I want ChellyWood.com to become a sort of library of free patterns that help people learn to sew doll clothes.
If you’d like to learn more about my motives, feel free to visit my Chelly’s Books page.
My Gallery Page is the easiest way to search through all of my patterns to find what you want. Each image on the Gallery Page takes you to links for patterns and tutorials.
Need help printing my patterns? This link offers a tutorial showing you how to download and print my FREE patterns using Google Docs. (For the older print-a-pattern tutorial, which uses Microsoft Word, click here.) To review my difficulty scale (demonstrating how hard or easy a pattern is by the number of flowers displayed), take a look back at this blog post.
Please note: 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) without margins, before printing. These designs use a scant 1/4 inch seam (4 mm to be exact).
My patterns are now available through “Creative Commons Attribution.” This means that I created my patterns (and therefore I own rights to them), but I’m willing to share them with everyone who will tell people about my website.
Here are some helpful ways to tell the world about my patterns:
- You can pin them on Pinterest.
- You can like them on Facebook.
- You can tweet about them.
- Use any other form of social media that appeals to you!
Are you new to sewing? I’ve got a playlist of tutorials for the beginning sewists on my YouTube channel. It includes video tutorials showing you how to do a basic straight stitch when sewing by hand, how to use the whipstitch to hem a garment, how to sew on snaps, and even how to design your own doll clothes patterns, for those who are new to design and alterations.
In case you haven’t heard, I have actually designed some commercial patterns for Lammily LLC. You might want to visit the Lammily website to see what they’ve got going on.
If your question wasn’t answered here, feel free to submit a question. I’m always happy to help my followers find what they need, so they, too, can make amazing doll clothes and crafts!

Very nice. Just wondering, would those clothes also fit on a regular Barbie doll? I don’t have any boy dolls, but I want a doll to play a boys roll in one of my stop motions.
The tie could easily be made for Barbie, but the shirt will fit too loosely. I recommend using another of my shirt patterns, like maybe this one, for example: https://chellywood.com/gallery/#jp-carousel-158099
Try attaching a collar to that shirt, using bias tape. Or you could try reducing the size of this doll’s shirt: https://chellywood.com/gallery/#jp-carousel-159595 She’s a much taller doll, but if you shrink the pattern down until you think it might fit Barbie, you may have just what you need.
Thank you so much! I’ll try it out.
