1870 Grecian-style Bathing Dress (MM1870-7)



This most beautiful bathing suit is based on one in the August 1870 issue of Peterson’s Magazine: “Fig. X. – Bathing-Costume of White Flannel. – Trousers fastened at the knee by a cross strip appliqued with (black) wool soutache braid in a grecian meander pattern. Peplum blouse, with short sleeves, and the same meander pattern, buttoned on each side and on the shoulders. 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.

Includes all sizes for bust 65 – 150 cm = 26 – 61”.
