Scroll down to the second set of bullets for the free PDF sewing patterns.
Earlier this week I set the lofty goal of converting all of my Ken tuxedo clothing patterns into one big giant PDF.
That didn’t happen. Life got busy! 😉
Instead, you’ll have to settle for a dinner jacket PDF. But hey, it’s enough for Ken to be able to take Barbie out for a nice Valentine’s Day dinner. (Make sure he’s wearing pants, though!) LOL!
Today’s free printable PDF patterns will fit the following dolls or action figures:
- 12 inch modern Mattel Ken dolls
- 12 inch articulated Mattel Ken dolls
- 12 inch Jake dolls from Spin Master
- 12 inch vintage Tammy’s Dad dolls from Ideal
And here are the patterns and tutorial videos you’re looking for:

Liv dolls (including Jake) were products designed and distributed by the Spin Master company, which still makes dolls and toys today (although the Liv dolls are no longer in production at the time of this blog post).

Please be aware that the Chelly Wood animated doll is a Spin Master Liv doll that has been re-painted and had its wig colored to appear to look like the real doll clothing designer, Chelly Wood. This was done as a creative project by Chelly’s daughters, and the Spin Master Toys and Games company was not involved in the doll’s makeover in any way.
