Retro Bathing Suit

May 15, 2009

Hi all.
I’m actively looking for a retro bathing suit pattern. I hope to find something from the fifties (one piece) I need a pattern that will fit a bust size 36″. I’ve checked all the vintage pattern companies from the dress a day blog. I’ve checked ebay.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I took the wardrobe refashion pledge, I am refraining from buying the item new (at least that is the plan).

  1. I was just going to suggest the alison bathing suit too! With a bit more of a boy leg this is a perfect fifties suit!

  2. I second (or third) the Alison bathing suit. I think I might try my hand at it. I have some awful pink polyester stretch material….
