Hello,

Can anyone identify this pattern or style of dress? I would like to recreate this. I know that it is a 1950 or 1960's style dress.

As always, your wealth of knowledge is most appreciated! Kiss

You could use a pattern like this one, http://www.mccallpattern.com/item/M4444.htm, and alter the top piece and add those, looks like folded over detail piece on the bodice, alter the straps to be a halter style, which isn't hard.

I think this type of garment was referred to as a playsuit (and often was actually a swimsuit) I think the "skirt" was actually split, like shorts, or perhaps a short skirt covering matching panties.   

Some similar outfits are here: http://www.sovintagepatterns.com/page/page/2871951.htm, especially this one:  http://www.sovintagepatterns.com/catalog/item/2871951/5750940.htm, though without the halter top. 

I think my mother had some of these when I was a kid.

I'm pretty sure I don't have a similar enough pattern on my etsy, but I'll take a look through my stockpile to see if I can get you a pattern number.

 Wink My mother used to have a old bathing suite that looked like this.  It was like a tennis dress but it was a swim suite and made of thicker cotton like fabric.  I was born in 1958 and she always had it. Hope this helps. Peace, Daydreamcatcher

Thank you all. I thought that it was one of those old style suits, but on the other hand, it could have been a very short dress. LOL. You all are a wonderful help. I sincerely thank you!
