I'm looking for a pattern for a bathing suit like this.




I just saw Gidget again for like the upteenth time and am gonna start rearing up for summer!

Does anyone know where I might be able to find a basic pattern? All I'm finding are decayed overpriced stuff at vintage websites.

The pattern itself doesn't have to be vintage, just the style.  Smiley

My husband found a big milk crate full of old patterns at our local Swap Meet(flea market) this past weekend. I can check this weekend to see if there are any in there for you. All of the patterns I saw (only a few of the bunches) were in really good condition. I saw some old holiday patterns for aprons and decorations among them also. Not sure how old they were though, seemed like 70's or 80's.

Burda Style has one that is similar.  It's even free!

That would be amazing!

Also, I'm loving your avatar picture.

I'm so mad at myself; I didn't even think to look there.

So sorry hobaker, haven't been able to find that same merchant at the flea market, but I hope you found a pattern for your vintage swim suit. I'm really looking forward to seeing it come alive.  If I do happen to find one anyways, I will let you know, I'm sure it would be neat to have a vintage pattern anyways.
