I love sewing in miniature and since summer is fast approaching, it was time to get out the swimsuit fabrics! The doll model is about 25 1/2 inches tall and has a lovely figure that fills out swimwear beautifully. I wish I looked as good in a swimsuit! LOL! I had various fabrics to work with…all of it with 4-way stretch.
4-way stretch lycra and spandex with matching fold over elastics and miniature 1/4" bra hooks.
Take off with pleats, cut-outs, insets, and futuristic prints.
