A Dashing Little Swim-Suit
This stunning two piece swimsuit was originally published in Woman & Home in 1938 as a single size pattern. The skirt is separate and is removed for swimming. The suit itself is knitted from the shorts up with side seams. A glamorous halter back fastened with contrasting buttons gives this swimsuit a very decadent edge.
The pattern is written for the following sizes: Bust sizes: 76-86cm (30-34in) & 91-97cm (36-38in)
