Take The Plunge Swimsuit 18" Doll Clothes

3 reviews   |  

This versatile pattern can be used for swimsuits, undergarments, dance wear and workout wear.  The top would make a great sports bra for your doll's favorite athletic activity.   The PDF sewing pattern includes a top that can be made as a halter top or with straps and boy cut dolphin style bottoms. It includes detailed instructions for techniques that will take the fear out of sewing with knits and FOE. 

Recommended Fabrics:  Medium-weight cotton/lycra knits, medium polyester knits, sturdy stretch lace, swim and dance 4-way stretch. Not suitable for one-way patterns. The knit should stretch from 4”- 5” and retain its shape (see stretch guide). Knits should be sturdy and retain shape after being stretched. Not suitable for overly light-weight knits

Supplies Needed:
-12” x 12” stretch knit fabric (see suggested fabrics)
-1 ¾” yard of ⅝” wide FOE (fold over elastic)
-Thread (matching fabric and FOE)

-Ball point needle (size 10-12) or stretch needle
-Pen for marking (disappearing or removable)
-Lighter or Fray Away® (or similar product)

Love it!!

Great pattern! So fun to put together! It went together fast too!


Great instructions and a professional look finished product

This pattern is very easy to sew and created a very realistic child-like finished suit. So much so in fact that my daughter asked if they had it in her size!
