This gorgeous little Sailing Suit consists of a top-stitched Hooded Cover-Up lined with terrycloth (toweling) or waffle weave to keep our 18” girl’s hair out of the wind and the chill off her back. Top-stitched side-tabs keep the Cover-Up from blowing off and pockets in which to keep her sunglasses have top-stitched binding trim. Tiny buttons on the pockets and at tab ends finish the neat look of the Cover-Up. The Bikini Top has a pleated center and as with the Micro Shorts, has top-stitched binding trim should she want to catch some sun. Palazzo Pants, with elasticized waist and top-stitched hems, ensure she doesn’t get chilly and fit nicely over the Micro Shorts when she needs to cover up – A super-chic outfit to enhance any yachting rendezvous. This PDF sewing pattern is designed to fit 18” soft-bodied dolls such as American Girl ®.Supplies Needed:

Just finished this darling ensemble and was thrilled that the outfit didn't look as easy as it was to complete. I'm not sure I'd call it a beginner-level pattern,though. A beginner could certainly do it, with the warning that a lot of patience will be required if you have never used bias binding on terrycloth. Also, I made my own binding to match the bathing suit. The instructions said I'd need 105 inches for the cover-up, so I made 110. I'm glad I did, because I had only 1 inch left over! (Maybe I miscounted) But I'll still give it 5 stars, because it's so cute! Thank you for the pattern. As always, LMM BRINGS IT!
After testing, i had to make all 8dolls in family this outfit. G randaughter thought her doll coulndt go sailing alone !! Used so little fabric. Quic and easy to make. The pockets were a hit. Doll's hands fit perfectly. Even looks great on my Our Generation doll Thank you so much for this one!
So much fun testing these patterns. They are so easy to do. Well planned, brilliant and clear tutorial. I love her finnishes. You alway end up with a brilliant product.
As with all Little Miss Muffett patterns I've tested the instructions and photos are clear in this fun outfit. The hood is perfectly sized for dolly hair.
