Stella and Pam, I did not intend to make a bathing suit but a playsuit. I remember my daughters wearing these but of course, they were not knitted! I have already knitted the longer version with the other top.
I find that with slimmer body of these girls the same outfit looks different from the original on Götz dolls.
Nicole, she is sweet. I agree with Stella, it reminds me of my swimsuit from the 50s! There was a craze for knitted swimsuits but they were a nightmare when they got wet haha!
When I knitted the shorts version of this pattern, I used the long version top, if you see what I mean!
