Description

1870 - 1890 Grecian-style Victorian Bathing Suit Historical Sewing Pattern by Deb Salisbury, the Mantua-Maker. It includes 20 pages of instructions with historical tips, and 5 pattern sheets. It's printed on bond paper, and enclosed in a reclosable plastic bag. All sizes Petite – Full (bust: 26" – 61") are included.

This bathing suit is based on one in the August 1870 issue of Peterson's Magazine: "Bathing-Costume of White Flannel. – Trousers fastened at the knee by a cross strip braided with a Grecian pattern in black wool. Peplum blouse, with short sleeves, with a braided Grecian pattern, buttoned on each side and on the shoulders."

A variation is available for a simpler, sleeveless bathing dress from 1887. The "Lady's Swimming Dress" consists of only the waist and drawers, without a skirt. Like the Grecian bathing dress, the shoulder seams are not sewn, but are buttoned together.

In this pattern, the bathing dress opens and is buttoned at the shoulders and both sides. The blouse can be made with or without sleeves. The drawers can be made in calf or ankle lengths, and can be gathered into cuffs. You can make it with or without the separate skirt.

Please read all instructions before touching your fabric. There are tips along the way to make your life easier!

FYI 1 - All instructions are in English.

FYI 2 - I do have a cat (allergy warning; my cat has such fine fur I find stray hairs in places he could *never* get to!) but he has little contact with my patterns. My home is smoke-free, but vintage books and trim may carry their own distinctive odors.
