So I just rented Sweeney Todd  and have become infatuated with the bathing costumes that are worn during the song, "By The Sea". I have a local festival coming up in July and costumes are the rage. I would love to make Mrs. Lovett's bathing costume. But.....1) I have no pattern 2) I have no stills or reference pictures. Can anyone help me out with this? And does anyone want to do a sew-a-long?

some day I'd like to make - maybe a more modern version of the striped dress. So yummy!

thanks! I think that this pattern will work with just a little tweaking.

You would have to alter:
Collar
Front Neckline
Waist of Shirt
Add belt detail
Cuffs on bloomers

not bad really...I wonder how fast they ship their patterns? Anyone ever order from them before?
