Blue Jeans Jacket for Ken

Do not throw away your used jeans anymore ! You can use them to sew tons of outfits for your dolls : pants, shorts, sweaters, skirts, dresses…

This jacket for Ken is very easy to sew. I used a pièce of fabric a little bit more used to sew the collar. I needed a différence in fabirc colors.

You can add pockets to the jacket.
