Okay, I'm totally obsessed with 40's style clothing. I just purchased the bathing suit on the left from www.pinupgirlclothing.com. I didn't like the swim skirt they offered, then I began to imagine the sailor shorts like the picture on the right. Simplicity offered a pattern 6407:
but I can't find it in my size. What would Lrigyttiw do??? I will make those shorts myself. I found a free pattern online, at BurdaStyle:
I think I'm going to maybe take some old jeans and play around with the concept. They will be made.
