Yesterday’s shirt pattern was only a partial pattern. Today I’m sharing the rest of that free dress shirt pattern, along with a jeans pattern, and both of these will fit Mattel’s Ken, Spin Master Jake dolls, Ever After High male dolls, and many other male fashion dolls.
Unfortunately, these patterns will not fit G.I. Joe dolls.
Here’s a link to the pattern page, where you will find it easier to download and print the pattern shown above. But if you need further help with downloading and printing my patterns, please look at my video tutorial which shows you how to print patterns.
This pattern is part of this week’s series, focusing on creating a full dress suit or tux for Ken (and other male fashion dolls). It includes the patterns for a shirt, trousers/pants, a tie, and even an easy-to-sew dinner jacket! Tomorrow I’ll begin posting patterns for the dinner jacket, and my easy-to-follow tutorial video will post right after that. So come back for another visit!
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.
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.
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!
