1885 Swim Costume Sp80-Bath
Sp80-Bath 1885 Swim Costume
11-piece hand-drafted pattern originally by Harper's Bazaar for the bloomers, top and the two swim caps shown. PIECES FOR CREATING THE CAPE ARE NOT INCLUDED!
The model illustrated is of dark red serge, which is piped with white at the edges. The blouse is cut down in a square at the front and back, but is kept snug at the back by a small yoke or collar, which is buttoned in the front.
Best for advanced skill level as the instructions are not illustrated and very basic.
3 yards of 44/45" with no nap are required. 3/8" seams are allowed. NO hems are given.
Size 18 fits 36" bust, 30" waist, 39" hip.
PATTERN NOT IN YOUR SIZE? Upon request, I am happy to furnish an additional schematic showing where to adjust the pattern pieces with instructions on how to re-size the pattern.
