I made this little set from a pattern i had in my stash, made of cotton and satin. I think it turned out pretty cute, and i found a picture of Marilyn Monroe in a similar outfit more on my blog

Can't be absolutely sure but it looks Marilyn Monroe (in her Norma Jean days?) might be posing on the beach at Balboa Island.

So cute! I was admittedly in the anti-romper camp until recently, but all these retro 40s/50s playsuits have changed my mind!
