A search on Sunday

I am looking for a pattern to knit this adorable rabbit.  Rabbit was a gift to the EFG shortly after she was born from a lady who was in my uni classes - she was a mature student living in the area, and she took a few of us younger ones under her wing!

Rabbit has been well loved and I would like to have a go at making a new Rabbit, although this old one will always be cherished.

Is there anyone out there who has any idea where I could find the pattern for this cute bunny?  She's dressed, with these lovely long ears, and is gently stuffed.

She wears a matching pair of knickerbockers or pantaloons under her dress.

Her dress buttons at the back of the neck.

I am getting more adventurous with my knitting these days, and would love to tackle this but I have looked around for the pattern to no avail.  Any clues or advice would be very welcome.  Given that the EFG will be 18 this year, it is not a new pattern and it may be that someone has an old copy - or maybe it was in a book.  Sadly I have had no contact with the lady who created Rabbit for many years and have no idea where she is now.  She is often thought of, though, and Rabbit is still a well-loved gift.

I haven't seen a pattern like yours, but I have made several Rabbits from They are fiddly but Oh, so worth it!!!
Sorry to hear about your mishap with the fence. We escaped any damage I'm relieved to say, but I was awake most of the night!! Unlike YOU!!!! I did sleep through the 'Michael Fish' hurricane though!!!!!

Thanks, RQ - another friend has found those rabbits as well, and she linked me in on FB to the lady's ravelry account. They are quite close, but the faces are different and I am silly sentimental and really want to make the dress and pantaloons! I WILL do one of the MJT bunnies if I can't find this one, though, as they look gorgeous. Thanks for letting me know - I'd be interested to know which ones you have made xxx
