Whilst it may seem a little odd for all my Aussie customers, the release of this cute Bikini and Tankini doll clothes pattern is just in time for summer in the northern hemisphere.
This is the perfect bikini for those dolls that want to look super cute at the beach whilst still dressing modestly. There are options to make a bikini or tankini top and the pants can be worn with the waistband pulled down into a mini skirt, or higher to reveal the little bikini bottoms. Frills feature on both the top and the pants and add a real ‘cuteness’ to the cossie – Aussie slang for swimming costume.
The best thing about the design of this bikini and tankini pattern is that as well as a great little swim suit, you also get awesome mix ‘n match pieces for your dolls wardrobe. The tankini top can be worn as a top with jeans or shorts, the bikini can be made without frills and worn as adorable underwear, or the pants can be worn as a mini skirt and matched with other tops for a casual summer outfit.
As an added bonus, Rosie shows you a great little tip for sewing with stretch fabric so you don’t have to fear sewing with knits anymore!
‘Sew’ what are you waiting for? Get your Bikini and Tankini doll clothes pattern today and your 18 inch and American Girl doll will be swimming this afternoon.
For all my Aussie mates, the beaches are beautiful in Queensland at this time of year so make this bikini or tankini pattern today and your Australian Girl® doll can be holidaying in the gorgeous Whitsunday islands tomorrow.
I will have the 18 ½ inch Cabbage Patch doll clothes pattern available soon.
