This is a digital, print-at-home pattern based off a 1940's shorts pattern from my collection.

The pattern is drafted in a size 20 but this pattern would be very easy to size up or down.
These shorts and bikini beach bra are a great combo for a perfect 1940's summer look!

Size 20
Bust 32-40"
Waist 32"
Hip (7" below natural waistline) 41 ins.

Please Note! Included with this pattern is a free copy of an E-book on grading sewing patterns to your size. Don't pass up patterns because they're not in your size! The e-book is 7 pages of illustrated how-to make any pattern work for your figure.

Shorts length at side seam, 1" hem allowed 14 1/2 ins.
Suggested Notions: Snaps or zipper for shorts placket, 100 yd spool of thread.
Fabric Requirements:
