This is a retro-style bathing suit I made from McCall’s 8026, a vintage mens shirt and bathing suit pattern. It has one small side pocket and and elastic sewn into the back waistband. I added a velcro fly and closures instead of a zipper and button. Can’t wait to wear it at the beach!
More about this on my blog, Male Pattern Boldness.
I used a multi-colored striped cotton seersucker I found in the Garment District in NYC.
Cool greys transition from summer to fall in a shirt dress, flowing maxi skirt, and new jackets.
