Scroll down to the second set of bullets for the free PDF sewing patterns.

This week I’m giving you the free printable PDF sewing patterns for making my “Father Capulet” costume for 12 inch (30.5 cm) male fashion dolls, like Ken, Tammy’s father, and similar-sized male fashion dolls and action figures.

The tunic has been marked with five flowers, in terms of the difficulty scale, so be wary that it takes a lot of detailed work to make those sleeves, as shown in the photo:

I’m also including my Renaissance muffin cap, even though Father Capulet doesn’t wear a hat in most of the scenes in my stop-motion doll version of Romeo and Juliet, if I remember that right. (Leave a comment correcting me, if I’m wrong about that.)

Here we see the free pattern for making a Renaissance muffin cap, like the ones worn by the 12 inch fashion dolls in Chelly Wood's stop motion video of Romeo and Juliet. This pattern is marked with a Creative Commons Attribution symbol. The pattern includes the circle crown pattern plus the rectangular head band, and if you go to ChellyWood.com, you can download it as a free printable PDF sewing pattern for this and many other doll clothes patterns.

And today’s pants pattern is for both the bi-colored Renaissance pants and the black ones that my Twilight Jasper doll wears in the Romeo and Juliet video series. But to make Father Capulet’s pants, you’ll want to follow the directions for single-colored pants, so just cut two of the front and two of the back patterns.

This is the JPG image of a free printable PDF sewing pattern for snap-front trousers or pants to fit Ken dolls and similar sized male fashion dolls (ranging from 12 inches or 30.5 cm to about 12 and a half inches, which is 31.75 cm). This pants pattern is used for both the bi-colored and the single colored pants worn by many of the male fashion dolls in Chelly Wood's stop motion doll video of Romeo and Juliet.

Sorry these patterns don’t have seam allowances drawn on them, but as it says in the information page of the PDF doll clothes pattern print-out, all seam allowances are already included in the patterns. Just use a 1/4 inch (4 mm) seam allowance after cutting them out following my patterns.

These are older patterns, from way back when my website was still just a fun project I was doing with my daughters. So these patterns and tutorial videos look sort of amateur-ish, and I apologize for that. Someday, when I’m not so busy, I’ll revise these old tutorials. But for now, this will have to do.

You’ll need cotton fabric (here’s a grey print similar to the fabric I used), size 4/0 Dritz snaps, and grey embroidery floss to make this Renaissance costume for your Ken dolls. Please note that, to make the stitches down the pants, I did a variation on the herringbone stitch. I also used a herringbone stitch for the yellow stitching on the red muffin cap.

Today’s free printable PDF patterns will fit the following dolls or action figures:

Please note that the tunic fits the upper bodies of additional dolls, like Broad Ken, and other dolls and action figures, but if you’re sewing for one of them, you might want to make some tights to go with the tunic instead of sewing pants. With GI Joe, though, his fisted hands are too big to fit through the bottom part of the sleeves.

And here are the patterns and tutorial videos you’re looking for:
