How to make a bra top for a 12inch or 30cm tall fashion doll

ShimmyShim bra modelled by Barbie and Sindy

This is a neat pattern I designed for some dolly underwear. It works well with lace for the shoulder straps.

I really like the way the pattern uses one simple piece - all you have to do is fold and sew!
