1880s Ladies Bathing Suit Pattern

1880s Ladies Bathing Suit Pattern

Bathing suits and swimming dresses were varied and fashionable during the 1880's. Women were beginning to become more active, and water sports - mostly consisting of wading, although there were a few true swimmers - were greatly enjoyed.

The yoked blouse, like this bathing suit, was one of the most popular.

In this pattern, the top and drawers are combined into one piece, while the skirt is a separate garment. It can be make with or without sleeves, and the lining is optional. A simple cap pattern is included.

This pattern includes 12 pages of instructions with historical tips and quotes, and 5 pattern sheets. It is printed on bond paper, and enclosed in a white paper envelope.

All sizes Petite X-large are included.
