Palmetto Swimsuit & Cover-up 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

2 reviews   |  

How can something be off and on at the same time? Off the shoulder styles are very on trend! This two-piece swimsuit has bardot-style straps, ruched and off the shoulder. The bottom echoes the ruching on the sides. You will be making this easy to sew design in all your favorite solids, prints, stripes, and combinations thereof. And you can top it off with a simple to sew cover-up made with a towel from the dollar store. (Of course, it can be made from fabric, but a small bar towel provides all the material you need with very little waste.) So easy to look fabulous at the beach or the pool! Enjoy!

This PDF sewing pattern is designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl®.

Palmetto Swimsuit and Cover-Up

Great pattern. I really liked the lines of this pattern. The angles of the panels give a great, flattering profile. The color blocking adds a dramatic detail. The ruching adds texture. I loved the off-shoulder neckline -- I think it would be cute as a t-shirt top, too. And a really quick cover-up.
