Splash Back To The 1980s Swimsuit Pattern For 15" Ruby Red Fashion Friends Dolls

1 review   |  

Splash Back in time with a classic children's swimsuit from the 1980s! A one piece swimsuit that is connected on the sides and open in the middle to show off the stomach and back.  Small pattern pieces and a color block style makes this pattern a great way to use your "leftovers" stash.

Made with woven fabrics instead of stretch.

This PDF sewing pattern by Crafty Lil Turkey is designed to fit 15" dolls such as Ruby Red Fashion Friends®.

    Really Cute!

    This little swimsuit is just as cute as can be! While the pattern is designed for woven fabric, I was curious if it would work in a knit. I tried it using a woman’s swimsuit from the thrift store, and it worked perfect. Because the swimsuit is fully lined, it avoids the sometimes difficult step of having to use fold over elastic ... just a small piece of elastic in the back to shape the bottom piece. I used a solid navy part of the same swimsuit to make the lining, meaning this cute suit is also reversible!
