Simplicity 8139 - Vintage 1950s Bathing Suit & Beach Coat
Bring it back to the 1950s with this vintage beachwear pattern. Pattern includes lined bathing dress with elastic at legs and a kimono sleeve coat with self belt. Choose a contrast lining for the coat to show it off at the cuffs and shawl.
Sizes: H5 (6-14) and R5 (14-22) UK
Please select your size from the dropdown menu below. Please be aware that as this pattern is based on a vintage style, the sizing is much smaller compared to today's shop sizes and we advise looking at the garment measurements as well as size measurements.
Suitable fabrics: the bathing suit is sized for stretch knits only (bandage jersey, spandex blends, activewear jersey, tricot knit). The coat is most suitable for terry knit for the beach, but make it in denim or a light linen for something more beach-to-restaurant style.
