Making this with my mom made me want to learn how to sew!

These swimsuits were so much fun to make! We were about to go to the beach, so I wanted to find a swimsuit pattern for my dolls. I found this one, and it looked really fun to make! I cut out all the fabrics and elastics for three swimsuits, and I looked at the pattern and showed my mom where to sew with the machine. The pattern was very easy to understand. It was my first pattern I have ever used and I didn't get frustrated at all! My mom said it was really easy to sew them! It was really fun, and I love how they turned out! I am 11 years old.

Much easier than it looks!

I generally prefer sewing wovens to knits, so I was a little intimidated to try this, but when I did I was pleasantly surprised! It went together quickly and easily and turned out beautifully! My machine doesn’t have a stretch stitch, but my basic zig zag worked just fine. My daughter can get this on and off her doll easily with no stress on the stitches. Another great pattern from LJC!
