I’ve been negligent to begin converting Ken patterns to PDFs, but the time has definitely come. Two weeks ago, I posted my felt dinner jacket pattern for Ken, and I’m working (one item at a time) to get the whole ensemble of Ken’s formalwear converted to PDFs for easy downloads.

But it takes time.

If you’d like to make today’s easy-sew elastic-waist pants for Ken, you’ll need some cotton fabric and a bit of 1/8 inch elastic.

    1. You’re very welcome.

      In all honesty, though, for the beginners out there, I have an even easier pattern in the Broad Ken section. Look for the pajama pants pattern. It’s easier because you don’t have to follow such a precise seam line to have them fit right.
