Sun Bathing Cutie 18" Doll Clothes

52 reviews   |  

The Sun Bathing Cutie One-Piece bathing suit is a miniature replica of a bathing suit worn in the 70's. The 70's original was a funky pink cotton print with a gathered bodice and flouncy ruffled skirt. This doll sized version works well in a cotton or cotton blend woven fabric. The bodice is lined, has a flirty ruffled skirt, and closes in the back with hook and loop. The two-piece version has the same ruffled bottoms with a cute bikini top. The two-piece top is reversible, giving you more options for variation. The PDF pattern also includes instructions to make a bonus wide brimmed sun hat made with burlap.

Sun Bathing Cutie 18" doll clothes

Overall I was very happy with the instructions and outcome. However, I found that the top was too snug to add the velcro tape and I had to use hook/eye to close. Next time I will add 1/2 inch (or a bit less) to be able to use the velcro for the closure. Otherwise, really enjoyed making this. (As well as everything I have purchased from Pixie Faire)

Great Pattern

I made the two-piece suit and sun hat for the 4 year-old great-granddaughter of a friend. I put together two sets for an option. My friend was so pleased that she took both sets! I also made coordinating beach totes. The patterns went together quickly and with ease.

So cute and easy

I made both versions of this. I had a little more trouble with the one piece; getting the bodice and bottom together. I loved making a bathing suit from woven material.
