Make my “Tybalt” costume for your Ken dolls with today’s free PDF sewing patterns @ #RomeoAndJuliet #DollClothesPatterns

Made to Move Ken models the Tybalt costume from Chelly Wood's Romeo and Juliet with dolls (a stop motion video). This image shows a male doll with long black hair and olive complexion. He wears a cream colored shirt with lace cuffs under a multicolored tapestry fabric jacket (actually it's cotton but has gold glitter and striped tapestry print in the colors of gold, brown, rust, burgundy, and forest green). This jacket has a nice V-shape, tapering at the waist where it snaps together. It also has epaulettes (wing-like structures that jut out at the shoulders), to give the jacket a military-like appearance. The trousers he wears are rust colored, while the lining of the jacket is burgundy. The shirt's lace cuffs extend slightly below the jacket's sleeves. He also wears a black cotton sword belt with a scabbard. The doll's hand hovers close to the sword's grip, as if he's anxious to fight. His boots, which come up to just below the knee cap, are made of black felt with tiny yellow embroidery floss laces and yellow or gold stitching around the top of the felt boots. This doll stands in a room that has a white floor (almost like snow) and a purple mottled wall. The logo appears in one corner of the image.

This was one of the earliest costumes I made for my Romeo and Juliet with Dolls stop motion video. When I designed it, I was thinking I was making the outfit for Romeo, but of course I later decided this would be Tybalt’s costume instead.

Here we see my newest Made-to-Move Ken modeling the Tybalt costume, although in the film, the role of Tybalt is played by my Finnick Odair doll, who wears a black wig.

This is a profile view of Made to Move Ken wearing the Tybalt costume for Chelly Wood's production of Romeo and Juliet with dolls. From the side, we can see that this Made to Move Ken has very long straight black hair. HIs facial features are very strong with a square jaw and bold nose. He wears the Tybalt costume without its sword belt and scabbard, so you get a good look at the trousers, which fit comfortably -- not too snug, not too loose, and which wrinkle just a bit above the felt boots. The lace at the ends of his sleeves is quite long, covering most of his fingers. The jacket has embroidery on the Epaulettes. The logo appears in one corner.

The tutorial videos for making this outfit are some of the earliest videos I made for my YouTube channel. Back then, I didn’t have very good software, so they are very simplistic tutorials. For that I apologize.

The patterns lack extensive instructions, and none of them have any drawn-on seam allowances (although as patterns, they do include a 4 mm seam allowance).

Furthermore, I should let you know that over time, the pattern for the original shirt that Tybalt wore (the one with a gathered collar) has been lost. So I’m incorporating the Romeo shirt into the patterns below.

Frankly, I think the Romeo shirt is the better pattern anyway, but to make a shirt similar to the one you see below, you’ll want to attach lace instead of a cotton cuff, to the bottom of the sleeves, and you won’t have to gather the shirt at the neckline:

In this image, we see the blousy shirt worn by Tybalt in Romeo and Juliet with dolls. This shirt has puff sleeves, like the Romeo shirt, but the sleeve cuffs are made of lace rather than cotton. The cotton of the shirt is off-white or ivory colored. This shirt is open at the collar, and the collar appears to be slightly gathered. There are no darts in the front of this shirt. The Made to Move Ken wearing this shirt also wears rust colored pants and black boots.

I also altered those sleeves to include a casing at the wrist, and then I added elastic above the lace.

Furthermore, the sleeves use a Renaissance “slashed sleeve” style, which you can see below.

In this close-up photo of a Made to Move Ken doll's Renaissance style "slashed sleeve," a woman's hand (thumb and index finger) pinch at the sleeve to open the two sides of the sleeve, exposing the fabric of the shirt worn beneath. It's barely noticable, but the coat's sleeves are lined with rust colored fabric, while the sleeve itself is finely decorated with a tapestry striped pattern on the outer part of the garment. There's gold foil style filigree in swirling patterns, as if it were embroidered with gold threads. In actuality, this is simply the print of the cotton fabric. But it really looks like a tiny person has embroidered patterns on a tapestry style fabric. The Chelly Wood dot com logo appears in one corner.

Needless to say, this project is not for the beginners out there. If I were revising this pattern, using all the methods I use today, I’d give it five flowers on my difficulty scale, meaning this Tybalt outfit is only for the very, very experienced sewists out there.

It even uses epaulettes at the shoulders, for that military-look.

But if you wish to brave this Renaissance costume for Ken-sized dolls, you’ll need some cotton fabric, 1/8 inch elastic (for the shirt’s wrists), lace, Dritz snaps, embroidery floss, and craft felt,

Here’s a link to yesterday’s blog post, which offered a few extra details on making the sword’s belt, sheath, and even the sword itself.

Here we see a close-up of a black belt and scabbard with sword, as worn by the male fashion dolls and action figures in Chelly Wood's rendition of Romeo and Juliet with dolls, a stop motion video on YouTube. This black cotton belt is clasped together with a silver beading toggle. The scabbard hangs by a tiny chain. The sword has green embroidery floss around the grip, and grey craft foam makes the sword's bell guard. The doll wearing this sword and scabbard wears the doll clothing associated with the character of Tybalt in Romeo and Juliet with Dolls. The logo appears in one corner of the image.

In a nutshell, though, you’ll need a little bit of craft foam, a toggle clasp, and for the sword you’ll need a piece of pre-cut wood in the shape of a picket. (Wooden stir sticks can be used, but you’ll need to cut them to a point at one end.)

There are a few differences between the sword belt and sheath shown above and the ones in the tutorial video, so go back to yesterday’s blog post for details about those differences.

The fabric I used for my jacket was a Christmas fabric, and I bought it at JoAnn’s Fabrics. Last time I was there, they still had some of this fabric, which really looks fantastic as a Renaissance style fabric!
