Vintage Swimsuit Pattern Giveaway!!

Anna, who lives in Norway has a fun blog called A Few Threads, and she is giving away a copy of this wonderful 1940s swimsuit pattern. Now I don't know about you, but I've entered. Part of the fun is she creates these beauties in PDF format.

Let's head on over to her ETSY shop called Mrs Depew Vintage, you must see some of the wonderful patterns she has. This being one of them.

This was originally released in the summer of 1950.

The Pattern is drafted in a size 34" bust, but the instructions say that it is easily made into a 32" bust by subtracting an inch from the back pattern piece, or it can be expanded into a 36" bust by adding an inch in the same place.

And sorry, we went to show you more this morning but her shop is now on vacation for a week. Yikes, sorry gals, but really it's worth the wait.
