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: a swim skirt or a swim skort, and two bottom options.
*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. A women's tankini top will make one or two swimsuits depending on size or cut. If buying or up-cycling a swimsuit, ensure that is not stretched or thinned due to wear.

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!
Love it , glad to be be working with cotton instead of knit for a change for my doll I will need to make the waistband wider.
So fun. So easy and so cute.
I love this pattern. I works up super quick, is a great way to use outgrown swim suits you may have laying around. Lots of ways to change it up for multiple variations.
