Splashing around in the water, these little 14.5” doll cuties are bound to create Wild Waves in their one-piece skirted swimsuits by Peppermintsticks. The carefree one-piece suit features a wavy skirt, with fold-over elastic trim around the top and back of the suit. It pulls on easily and has a snap closure at the neck. Mix and match bright colors, polka dots or animal print swim fabrics with fun shades of the fold-over elastic to make a wild waves combination all your own. The PDF sewing pattern also contains instructions for making a little matching headband from the fabric scraps and elastic. Embellish it with a tiny decorative button and it makes a fun fashion accessory.
Special Note: This PDF pattern is designed to fit a 14.5 inch WellieWishers Doll specifically.
