  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. Hi! Thank you so much for these patterns! Do you think the clothes would fit the 12″ Hagrid Doll? I think I might make a muslin set first…

      2. What a great question, Janel!

        I was given a Hagrid doll for Christmas a couple of years ago, but I hadn’t taken him out of the box yet. This gave me the perfect reason to do so, and I thank you for it!

        I tried the blue trousers on him first. The inseam is right, but the waistline is too slim for him. Next I tried the gingham shirt on him. It fit, although it’s a bit snug.

        Finally, I tried the pajama pants on him (which have the same waistline as the shorts). I could pull these up over his portly belly, but it was difficult. And then, once I got them on him, the inseam wasn’t long enough.

        It has been a while since I did a #TapeMeasureTuesday feature on this website, but your question has inspired me. I think I will offer a blog post on this very topic, on Tuesday, July 27th. I think other doll clothes sewing enthusiasts may benefit from the same topic. Thanks for asking this great question!

    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:

      The best way to find patterns for 12 inch male dolls here on is to a.) Click on the home page, and b.) choose the image of 12-inch male dolls, and c.) pick from the list of clothing styles and doll types. These links will then take you to a gallery of all the outfits I’ve made for various Ken-sized male dolls.

      Hope that helps!

  3. Thank you so much for this pattern and video that helped me sew my first ever doll clothing piece. It’s for a Hagrid doll and trousers fit very well, for a first. Hand sewed the crotch seams then machine for the inseams (my first machine sewing exercise too!). I skipped the elastic and the leg seam parts but now I know I can make it !

    1. Oh that’s wonderful Fabien! I’m so happy to have helped you!

      For your information, I also own a Hagrid doll, and I intend to make patterns specifically for him at some point. So watch for those in the future!
