Outfits For The Dress Up Mouse and The Piggies


These outfits were designed to fit the mouse I posted here. The mouse is about 6 inches tall to top of ears.
The overalls and the dress also fit the Three Little Piggies.


This is a free pattern for all to enjoy. You'll find a print option at the bottom of the pattern.  If you would like to leave a donation please do so by using the donation button also located at the bottom of this pattern. Donations of any size are greatly appreciated and do help me to keep on providing free patterns.

Thank you so much and enjoy!

Supplies:
Red Heart Comfort yarn in any color. Or use the same weight yarn you used to make your mouse with.
4.5mm hook

scissors

Read me ~> How to read the rows: Each row has a sequence as given below. Example: 1sc then 2sc in next st means repeat that sequence 1sc then 2sc in next st followed by 1sc then 2sc in next st over and over to the end of that particular row. The number inside the parentheses ( ~ ) is the number of stitches you should have at the end of that particular row.

f/o leaving a long tail for sewing.

Straps: *you can crochet a chain right onto the overalls and connect in the back. I prefer to make them separately and sew them on. They feel more sturdy this way as the ends will overlap and you can add in a good number of holding stitches. Do what you feel is best for you.

1) ch12
2) starting in 2nd ch, 1sc in each ch (11)
f/o leaving a tail for sewing. Weave starting yarn tail into the strap. Use the finishing yarn tail to sew the straps to the overalls.

 

Assembly of Overalls:

1) sew the  two open ends in the back of the overalls together. Sew only the top corners so that there's a hole left for the mouse's tail. Weave in yarn tail. See first photo below.
2) Sew one end of each of the straps to the bib. There is enough to overlap them quite a bit. The overlap should be on the inside of the bib, so the overlap is not seen when the doll wears them. Once done weave the yarn tail along the strap to the other end. Stretch out the strap then knot the yarn tail off at the end. Use this yarn tail to sew this other end in place. Weave the other yarn tail in to hide it.
3) Sew the bib to the front and center of the overalls. Weave in yarn tails.
4) Sew the straps to the back of the overalls. Again there will be quite a bit of overlap. If unsure how much you can overlap it, just place the overalls on the doll and see. Weave in yarn tails.






And you're done. Dress your mouse :)

  2. I adore your patterns! I think you may have a little mistake on row 3 of the dress. When you do the chain 4, don't you need to skip 4 to make the hole for the arm?
