This is a bikini top and shorts pattern based on an original 1940's set.
The shorts feature front and back waist darts, narrow waistband, and side zipper or snap closure.
The bikini features a knotted tie halter strap. Because of the nifty gathering effect of the pattern front, there's actually quite a bit of room in the bust area, depending on how tight you tie the knot at the bust. This pattern is for a 38" bust but easily adjusts to other sizes bu just removing or adding a bit of allowance to the side seams.
These shorts and bikini beach bra are a great combo for a perfect 1940's summer look!
The pattern was based on a popular 1940's silhouette but is an original design.

I grew up in an antique shop surrounded by lovely vintage clothing and I guess vintage just stuck. Recently I took my passion for sewing and vintage lingerie and combined them into a vintage inspired pattern line offering hard to find pattern styles in digital form.
Please Note: There are no returns on digital patterns so please read the item description carefully before purchase.
