I made this 1963 playsuit from Simplicity 5424 for vacation in Disney World.

I made view 2 of the pattern.

I used a thrifted Asian printed knit with decorative frogs to complete the look.

It was so fun to wear! I did make a few changes to it as I was working with a knit. I eliminated closures on both the skirt and top as well as added a band below the top to help it stay in place.
