One of my friends has the sweetest 4 yr old twins who love many things including Tae Kwon Do, dresses, and dolls.  For their birthday I really wanted to acknowledge the things they love.  I got really lucky and found a vintage Todd doll on kijiji, since Barbie doesn't make any boy dolls anymore. 
I used slightly modified vintage skipper patterns for the clothes (I need to do some more work on fitting them to modern dolls), and made some kids pretty happy on their birthday.





The little guy I was giving this to loves to wear dresses so I wanted his doll to be able to dress like he does. 











And because my husband was having fun doing action shots

Cute! And what a lucky find! I wish Mattel would start making the Todd and Tommy dolls again. I want some boy dolls to dress up.

I agree that it's fun to dress male dolls, and Mattel has made very few male dolls that aren't adult. They are getting better at making more articulated male dolls, though. I bought a Texas A & E doll this year on Amazon, and he's fully articulated. Here's a picture of him in the monk's costume I made for him.

I'm right now making costumes for a YouTube production of Barbie's Romeo and Juliet. I couldn't find a teenage male doll (articulated) who would make a good Romeo. The Zach Efron doll from High School Musical came close, but he's not quite cute enough IMHO.

Todd is adorable in this Tae Kwon Do outfit! Kjlutz, did you post a tutorial showing how to make these? I'd be interested in making them too. Very cute!

I made them too quickly to put together a tutorial.  I used white knit fabric and vintage skipper patterns to put them together quickly.  I left all the edges raw to reduce bulk.
