Remember this costume? It was worn by Father Montague in my stop-motion video of Romeo and Juliet with Dolls, on YouTube.
Here’s the entire playlist for Romeo and Juliet with Dolls, just in case you haven’t seen this production, which was created by me and my two daughters, back when they lived at home:
This costume was also worn by The Prince in Romeo and Juliet with Dolls, as you’ll see in the image below:
Unfortunately, when I updated this pattern in August of last year, I uploaded the earlier prototype pattern instead of the revised pattern. This earlier prototype had an error; it was slightly too small for Ken dolls.
Someone who follows my Pinterest account left a comment on the pattern, on Pinterest, noting the discrepancy. Thank you for letting me know!
I’ve corrected the error, and the new (corrected) pattern has been uploaded to the August 2022 blog post for the Ken Renaissance tunic and pants patterns.
As you can see in my recent “bloopers” reel, I do make mistakes from time to time, and this is one of those mistakes!
Some people who follow my YouTube channel or my Pinterest account mistakenly believe that ChellyWood.com is being monitored by a whole crew of employees working for a small company. Nope.
It’s just little ol’ me.
I design all the patterns. I sew the doll clothes. I take the photos. I make the videos. I answer the emails.
And frankly, I really, REALLY enjoy it! This is my “fun time”!
In my day job, I’m a full-time school librarian, which means I create everything for this website, my YouTube channel, and more on the weekends. That’s why I do make mistakes sometimes, understandably.
I’m now 56 years old, so my brainy-brain isn’t as pliable as it once was! And let’s face it, this massive project of creating a library of free patterns will someday be impossible for me to keep up with.
I do hope someone will pick up where I left off when I’m gone. My niece, Mel, is attending an art college, and although both my daughters are very artistic, I think Mel is more like me in how she expresses her artistic gifts.
Maybe, when I pass, she will take on the task of continuing to design and post free doll clothes patterns for future generations. Here’s a picture of me with Mel, at her high school graduation party:
She also enjoys sewing for dolls, and even though she’s all grown up now, she still collects dolls too. She has a passion for the ball-jointed dolls that are quite expensive, and she’s good at repainting doll faces and re-rooting hair.
She did the re-root of my vintage Ideal Tammy doll, which you may have noticed here on ChellyWood.com, so her talents extend well beyond my own!
Well, anyhow, I’m sorry about the error I made on the Ken costume, but it has been corrected. If you have saved this pattern to your computer or printed it since August of 2022, you might want to go back and delete the old one and switch it to the new version.
Also, if you ever find errors in my patterns, please feel free to let me know.

I love this post and the photos of you!!! Just awesome!!! I still have it on my to-do list to make those Romeo and Juliet outfits. Thanks for all the wonder patterns and posts.
You’re quite welcome, Marianne. Thank you for commenting! It makes me feel so good when people comment truthfully, from the heart! ❤️
Thank you for this update! I love your channel! It has inspired me to make doll clothes for my lovely granddaughter!
I can’t get the free patterns , not sure what’s going on
Hi Jacy. I cruised over to the “Cosplay” page for Ken dolls, and as far as I can tell, the patterns are working. Let me know, though, if that’s not the case. I’ll try to trouble-shoot from my end. It helps to know what the problem is.
Are you clicking on the pattern and it’s not giving you a PDF for example?
