For your free pattern, please scroll down to the second set of bullets.

Today we’re going to sew a bikini top or sports bra to fit most 10 inch fashion dolls. Tomorrow I’ll be posting the full outfit of a bra and panties or the full bikini set, but for now, you can locate the swimsuit bottoms / panties on this page.

As you can see in the cover art for my video, in addition to Skipper, the Creatable World dolls also fit in this bra or swimwear top. In fact, a while back I did a #TapeMeasureTuesday feature, in which I compared the Creatable World dolls with Skipper, in terms of sewing measurements. To see that earlier blog post, click here please.

But as you can see in the image below, the swimsuit top / sports bra looks very nice on the Creatable World dolls:

This photograph shows the Chelly Wood doll clothing designer doll measuring Skipper's arm with a tiny 1:6 scale tape measure. Skipper extends her arm while the Chelly Wood doll looks at the tape measure to determine how long Skipper's arm is from the underarm to the wrist. Skipper stands barefoot in a swimsuit beside Chelly Wood's tiny 1:6 scale sewing desk. On the desk, a Creatable World doll is seated, waiting her turn for measurements. The creatable World doll seems to be wearing a training bra and panties. Their legs are crossed so the CW doll leans back on the sewing table elegantly. Behind them is a dress form, ironing board, and a tiny window. There's also a miniature china hutch filled with fabric. This is clearly a teeny-tiny doll sewing room. All the dolls seem to be having fun as they prepare for a new wardrobe that fits both Skipper and the Creatable World doll. If you'd like to see the wardrobe of free printable sewing patterns that Chelly Wood has designed for either Skipper dolls or Creatable World dolls, please visit ChellyWood.com and click on the 10 inch doll size from the main Home page gallery.

Unfortunately Skipper‘s purple floral swimsuit top uses a different pattern, and I don’t have that pattern available for downloading just yet.
