Taking the plunge
I've wanted to make myself a period beach outfit for ages. This is a great style and the pattern fits very well. (I'm 5'4" & a UK size 10/12) An easy make too. The only alterations I made were shortening the skirt and under-shorts about 2" and making the band at the bottom of the bra the same width as the waistband. And I'll probably use the under-shorts pattern to make myself a pair of simple 1940's style trousers too...
