From the modest garments that were all the rage in 1880 to the barely-there bikinis of the 1970s, this vintage collection charts the best of swimwear over 130 years. More than 25 fabulous, historically accurate, and fully annotated patterns include swimsuits for both adults and children—and two projects come complete with step-by-step sewing instructions. The designs include a demure 1920s costume with tunic and drawers, knitted suits from the 1940s, 1960s halter-neck bikinis in bold geometric prints, and much more. It's an invaluable resource for students, designers, and fashion historians.
