Cat's Meow - Dress Up Bunch Doll Dress, Panties and Cat Patterns
What you get+-
Lizzie loves cats!
Really, she loves all animals. But she has a very, very special feeling for her many cat friends.
Once a week she volunteers at her local animal shelter. First, she walks all the dogs. Then she goes into the cat room and really settles in. She plays with all the kittens and she pets all the older cats. Even the grumpy cats let her pet them because they can tell she loves them. :-) On animal shelter days, Lizzie always wears her cat dress.
Of course, Lizzie has a rescue cat at home, too. Her name is Butterscotch. :-)
The Cat's Meow collection includes patterns for the dress and the cat you see in that photo of Lizzie, but also for something you can't see. Panties!
A doll needs more than one pair of panties, you know. :-)
You Get. . .
- A digital pattern delivered by email. (If you're not sure what a PDF pattern is, you'll find more info here.)
- Full-sized pattern pieces for her dress, panties and pet kitty. No need to enlarge anything!
- Detailed instructions and lots of full-color step-by-step photos. You’ll never feel lost or wonder if you’re doing things right.

Fits all Dress Up Bunch dolls (dolls are 17 inches tall)
Easy! No special skills needed. Attaching the elastic to the legs of the panties might be a new skill, but it's not hard.
What You Need+-

You might also want. . .
