This little lovely bit of 1950’s heaven came from a supplement, instead of an actual pattern. It was a breeze to make up and only took me about 4 hours.
I have all sorts of plans for this little baby including adding a skirt to make a dress out of it, sewing it with a contrast collar, and hopefully finding another vintage pattern to make matching bathing suit bottoms as well. The options are endless.
And I just couldn’t keep it to myself. So I made it into a PDF (8 hours of hell on earth working with photoshop: not in my repertoire of talents) and it’s for sale in my etsy shop.
You can see many more pictures of this, and my other projects on my blog A Few Threads Loose:
