1963 Retro Summer Doll Clothes Pattern For Dollfriends

  |  

1963 Retro Summer is a remake of an actual 1963 bathing suit and cover-up coat. Option A is the one-piece retro design without modifications.  Option B adds a modern twist by breaking up the design into a bra-top and high-waisted short. Option C mixes the two previous designs by adding the midriff to the bra-top and a waistband to the shorts.  A floppy hat was added to provide extra summer fun.

This PDF sewing pattern is designed to fit 18-19" Dollfriends®.   Please refer to the measurement chart shown in the listing images to see detailed Dollfriends® measurements.
