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! 😉

This is the JPG version of Chelly Wood's free printable PDF sewing pattern for making a dinner jacket or Tuxedo coat for Ken dolls and similar sized 12 inch male fashion dolls. On the JPG image, you can clearly see that it's a fairly simple pattern for making a jacket out of craft felt, and there are only three flowers, indicating that the project is fairly easy with a little bit of sewing knowledge. The pattern includes a jacket front, a jacket back, and a sleeve pattern. There are also photos of Barbie and Ken getting married, and Ken stands beside his bride wearing this felt jacket in black craft felt. The pattern is dotted with the symbol for Creative Commons Attribution and the logo.
