The Aloha Vintage Swimsuit is a historically-inspired design that is appropriate for the late 1930s...
the pattern was very easy to follow, and fit perfect on the dolls.
Love this pattern. So cute.
I enjoyed sewing this pattern. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. My swimsuit looks wonderful and better than expected. Thank you for a lovely pattern!
My daughter wanted a 2 piece swimsuit for Saige and I decided to try out this pattern. We were delighted with the results. I used 5/8" foldover elastic for the waist and made the straps longer to tie halter style behind the neck. Saige now has several swimsuits to choose from. I was so excited about mastering the foldover elastic that I immediately tried out the Gotchies sports bra and boy shorts! Good job! Keep the patterns coming!
This is a very cute pattern. Instructions are very clear. I have made 3 so far and will be making more
