Here we see a Mattel Skipper doll looking to her right. She is posed with arms slightly extended. She wears a handmade set of under garments or possibly a swimsuit. The bra is a sporty sports bra style garment with white cotton jersey fabric for the top half of the sports bra and blue elastic for the bottom half of the sports bra. The straps are made of the same turquoise blue elastic as the bottom half of the sports bra. The underpants (or swimsuit bottoms) are made of white cotton jersey fabric with the same turquoise blue elastic waistband that we see in the straps and bottom half of the sports bra. The underpants elastic just barely covers the doll's belly button. These would be considered briefs in terms of under clothing styles.
