Recently I picked up a cute girl’s swimsuit to upcycled into a doll swimsuit. It was my first time making a swimsuit using my sewing machine, so my dolls get to keep this one!
The swim fabric has pairs of flip flops on it in many different colors. I used the free swimsuit pattern on Pixie Faire here. I didn’t fold the fabric twice over, just used the lining that was already in the girl’s swimsuit. I used white fold over elastic to finish the edges.
The blue shorts I upcycled from a girl’s rashgaurd. I used this pattern on Pixie Faire. These shorts are super quick and you don’t even need elastic!
I got the pink little water shoes from Sophia’s. You can see them here. I did realize they have cardboard insoles which came unglued when they got wet. I will probably cut new insoles from craft foam and put them in the shoe instead.
You can read how I made the flower hair clip here.
On to the photos!
