Back to School - skirt, shirt, shoes and backpack pattern



- +

Lizzie is ready to go back to school!

This collection includes patterns for a kicky pleated skirt and uniform shirt.

Shoes too!

Plus a backpack. She can't go to school without a backpack!  This pink kitty backpack is inspired by the boxy ones school kids in Japan use.

So cute!

Please note - this pattern is just for the outfit and accessories. None of the dolls you see in the photos are included. All the Dress Up Bunch dolls (except Mini Lizzie) can wear all of the Dress Up Bunch outfits and accessories.

This is exclusively available as a PDF pattern, delivered instantly and ready to print onto letter-size paper. No shipping costs and no waiting!

Talk to Me

If you're hiring out any part of the process, please get in touch and we'll work out a fair licensing agreement.

For example, if you want to hire someone to machine embroider the faces, or do all the stuffing for you, those two scenarios would require a licensing agreement. Get in touch! I'm easy to talk to. :-)
