  1. Thank you, I was at my wits end when I found your website. After that it was so much fun I didn’t want to quit.

  2. I am totally useless at sewing but managed to make Ken a pair of pyjama trousers by obsessively following your tutorial. It took me about 3 hours = I did it all by hand and I’m feeling rather proud of myself. Thank you! I think a pyjama top might be a bit more difficult!

    1. Good job! I’m glad to hear that my tutorial was helpful. And yes, shirts are more difficult.

      There are projects that are easier though… An elastic-waist skirt for Barbie, a felt top or felt hat. You might try those next. Thanks for leaving a comment!

    1. Broad Ken isn’t the same size as the older style Ken dolls. But I’ve designed a wedding set that fits regular Ken dolls really well. Here’s a link to that pattern:
