Anne Adams Swimsuit Patterns

These images are from a 1944 booklet of Anne Adams Patterns. I really like the look of all the 'Sunshine Patterns'. The price of these patterns in 1944 was only 16 cents via mail order. You can click on the images for a larger view.

Check out the two piece 'flirtatious bathing suit with sissy trunks', it comes with its own matching companion cape or skirt. And I adore the heart shaped pockets on the overalls.

And as an added bonus are a layout and instructions for making your own apron pattern. Looks fairly easy to me, I may just make one of these up this week.

Don't forget, if you are looking for a vintage swimsuit pattern we have a wide selection at glamoursurf. Enjoy!
