>Bikini, Circa 1935

>


Hurrah! My projects which were cut out and waiting to be made are finished! This is from a German pattern from 1935. It came from one of those wacky pattern magazines, which I have a bizarre attachment to- the ones that look like crazy maps and you have to trace them out. The mannequin has more of a “torso” than I do, so the gaping doesn’t happen on me in real life. The plaid fabric is original from the 30s. Now I’m set for a summer beach party, even if it does look somewhat juvenille, that was the style!

    >Not juvenile at all, it’s wonderful! So can you actually swim in this?

    >Oh my gosh! I thought I was the only person attached to those old German magazines, now I don’t feel like such a weirdo! I’d love to see what else you have *drooling*

  6. >Wow, now that’s amazing. (And great job matching up the stripes at the sides!) Can’t believe you don’t mind tracing off magazine patterns- it drives me to distraction….

    >I love the plaid!!! I can totally see you sporting this with a jaunty 1930s sunhat and pair of brightly colored sandals and chic sunglasses! The bikini styles from the 30s and 40s are my favorite. 😉 I'd love to make one eventually!

  8. >Very nice job. Surely a bikini like that is not for swimming but for showing off while you lie on the beach
