Such a fun pattern to make! There are a lot of swimsuits for girls, but these board shorts, that work for both boys and girls, are a great addition to my swimsuit collection. The spandex top with it’s eye catching stripes is not really difficult - it’s just seams! Instructions are clear and easy to follow, and the fit is perfect. I appreciate that these shorts have elastic in the back, making them fit a variety of dolls well.
