Scroll down to the second set of bullets for the free PDF sewing patterns.
Yesterday I gave you the patterns and tutorial videos for making Jake a long-sleeved shirt with a collar, and a pair of elastic-waist slacks or trousers.
Today I’m giving you the patterns and tutorial videos for making a raglan-sleeved casual T-shirt. These patterns will fit vintage Ken, Ever After High male dolls, and your Spin Master Jake dolls.

- 11 3/4 inch (29.8 cm) Ever After High male dolls
- 12 inch (30 cm) Jake dolls (Spin Master)
- 12 inch (30 cm) vintage Ken dolls (crew cut Ken and Allen)

I’ve produced this video before, but when I was preparing my Jake pattern PDF conversions to publish here, I realized how old the original tutorial was. So I decided it was time for a facelift on this video!

Is this pattern close to what you were looking for, but maybe you’re wishing the pattern was slightly different? If so, my Creative Spark class, “How to Alter Doll Clothes Patterns” may be just what you need to make these patterns into the pattern you see in your imagination.
I also have a course on the Creative Spark Online Learning platform that teaches you how to design your own doll pants, including overalls. How cute would Jake look in a pair of denim overalls?!!
For any class on Creative Spark, you don’t have to follow a schedule. Just sign up when you’re ready.
It’s a one-time fee for the course, and there’s no specific time limit to finish your course. You can just take your time and learn at the pace that suits you. So go check out my paid courses on Creative Spark, using this link.
