Pattern Description:

This bathing suit pattern design was inspired by the classic photograph of Marilyn Monroe in a clingy white one piece bathing suit. What woman doesn't want to look like a pin-up at the beach?

The pattern is designed in 2 versions: Version 1 is a strapless, lined one-piece with a darted bust, optional side boning for support, center back zipper, gusseted lining and offers some lovely rear and upper thigh coverage. Version 2 has a collar style halter top strap.

Sizes are included for a 33"-42" bust.

This pattern includes all seam allowances, cutting diagram and step-by-step- instructions including how to print and assemble the pattern at home.
