Every kid needs a bunch of everyday play clothes, right?
Well - The Dress Up Bunch needs play clothes too!
Here's a shirt and pair of shorts that will do the trick. Make up a bunch of them in lots of fun colors and prints! (You can see them in other fabrics on Poppy and Violet in the additional photos.)
Please note! This pattern WILL COME WITH all the boy and girl dolls. You ONLY need to buy it if you are only making critters that don't come with clothes - dogs, cats, monsters, etc.
These will fit even if you make those critters out of very shaggy fur. :-) You can see a photo of Rumples the shaggy dog in his outfit.
I designed these to be easy for little hands to put on and take off all by themselves. The arm and leg openings are large enough to slide easily over the big hands and feet and the closures are all easy elastic, snaps or hook & loop tape.
I designed these to last. All the edges are finished and the clothes will be durable enough for lots of not-always-gentle play and any necessary trips through the washer and dryer.
I also designed these to be easy for you to make. The pieces are small - so there are fiddly bits - but I give you a heads-up about those spots in the pattern so you can take a deep breath and sew slowly. You can do it!
What You Get
full-size printable pattern for a shirt and a pair of shorts - no enlarging needed
detailed instructions and lots of step by step photos - you'll never feel lost or wonder if you're doing it right
links to videos teaching you all the skills you'll need to complete the project
What You'll Need
less than 1/4 yard fabric each for the shirt and shorts
3 9mm snaps or 4 inches 3/8″ hook & loop tape
12 inches 3/8″ elastic
Easy! There are a couple of fussy places when you're sewing the shirt - but I warn you about them in the pattern. Just sew slowly and you'll be fine.
These will fit all the dolls in The Dress Up Bunch - including the critters. The pattern includes instructions to leave openings for any tails. :-)
