For Kindred Thread Signature

Growing up only blocks away from the beach, Maryellen Larkin must have practically lived in her swimsuit come summer! Swimwear in the 1950s was made of woven material, not the stretchy Lycra we know today, and an adorable pattern drafted by My Angie Girl perfectly fits the bill. The Ginny Ruffled Swimsuit is created in high-quality woven cotton gingham in a cool aqua blue, trimmed with crisp white ruffles and cheery orange rickrack. The back is shirred with elastic thread for a snug fit, and the halter top ties behind the neck. A white yoke is trimmed with three tiny orange buttons the color of fresh Florida citrus! All internal seams are serged for a durable finish.

Please note that the listing is for the Ginny Ruffled Swimsuit only – the doll and any other accessories are not included. This dress is ready to order on an ongoing basis but may take up to three weeks to ship depending on existing inventory. Fabric and trim may vary slightly based on availability. Price includes FREE SHIPPING via first class mail to the United States and Canada. Intended for adult collectors.
