Bathing Suit made from a McCall’s vintage pattern (8285) from 1966. The pattern was too big and the bust too pointy so I changed the shape to suit my frame better. I also gathered the front at the center and added some decorative buttons. I added a small pocket to the bottoms as well. I made this in the winter for Sew Weekly’s “Down Under” challenge and have only worn it once. I am so not an outdoorsy person!
I used lightweight stretch denim and lined it with spandex in a metallic leopard print. The buttons have anchors on them.
No need to go outside… spend the morning in dolled up in this collection of vintage style pajamas.
