This fun swimsuit will have your doll hitting the beach or pool in style. The simple design is perfect for beginners or if you are apprehensive about working with knits. This PDF pattern features two top options and four bottom options including a swim skirt or a swim skort.
*The Summer Fun Sporty Swimsuit is meant for pretend play. Dolls should not be submerged in water.

Recommended Fabrics:  Choosing a good quality swimsuit fabric is key. Most of the samples were made with swimsuits bought new on clearance.

Supplies Needed:

  • ¼ yard swimsuit fabric (see Fabric Tips)
  • 12mm (1/2”) bra hooks
  • 18mm(¾”) jump ring OR
  • 10” x ⅛” ribbon or cording

Scrunchy Swimsuit

Great instructions as usual from this pattern maker. Like the different options for the bottom and the bead trim is the icing on the cake!

Scrunchy Swimsuit Pattern!

I haven't used it yet so I can't give you a review as of right now!! But I have other patterns from this site and I have absolutely loved them!

Dana R.

Cute & Trendy

Goes together quickly. You can even make it without the skirt, which gives it a sporty, sassy look. Girls will love this because of the beading that you can add on the top & at the sides of the bikini bottoms!
