Sofie's "Just for Wovens" Swimsuit and Coverup 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

12   |  

This pattern is reminiscent of the 60’s swimsuit patterns that were made of woven fabric, usually cotton, because that was all that was available then. Polyester was new, but stretch swimsuit fabrics for home sewers was non-existent. Although swimsuit fabrics are abundant today it can be intimidating because of its stretchy quality.
This fashionable swimsuit and coverup pattern is as contemporary as it is retro and easy to sew in woven fabric only!
The swimsuit is two pieces with an open back and skirted bodice; bottoms have elastic waist and legs.
The coverup, made also of woven fabric, has raglan sleeves with a hood and the whole thing is banded along the front edge.

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

Woven swimsuit

I love this pattern. I did however have the same problem that Pam S did. The crotch did not match up at all. I took the front piece, the piece placed on the fold, and allowed about an extra 1/4 inch (out from the fold) and it fit together perfectly. Cutest swimsuit ever!

Sofie's "Just for Wovens" Swimsuit and Coverup 18" Doll Clothes Pattern

The swimsuit and coverup pattern is easy to follow and well written. Fun to make. The coverup is perfect for the swimsuit. I purchased this pattern because it is for woven fabrics.
