Basic Skills Necessary:

  • use sewing machine

Pattern Description:

Here's a pretty outfit for all the girls in The Dress Up Bunch - and easy shirt and gathered prairie skirt.

It's CRAZY easy to make. No set in sleeves. No facings. No hemming curves.

The gathers in the skirt will take a little time - but there's nothing hard about it.

Make it up in neutrals (like Emily's hedgehog outfit shown here) and it's perfect for a nature girl.

Make it up in bright colors for a girl who likes to stand out.

Add some fancy trim around the bottom hem. Maybe some rickrack or pompom fringe?

Add a bit of embroidery. Add some special buttons. Dress it up or down to suit your doll's needs - and personality. :-)

Use this one pattern to make up a whole wardrobe of mixable and matchable skirts and shirts!

This outfit is easy for little hands to put on and take off all by themselves. The head opening and skirt top are stretchy elastic. Easy peasy!

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.

What You Get

* full-size pattern for the shirt and skirt - 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

* 1/4 yard fabric (or scraps in different colors) for the skirt
