1950's Bathing Suit Dress

Is this not the cutest? I swear the 1950's came up with some of the most adorable outfits. This is a vintage bathing suit/sunsuit/playsuit or whatever you want to call it. Why can't I ever find any of these?!

I love it! Very pretty.

If you're good at sewing, why not search for patterns?

It is, however, incredibly easier to project yourself as the sexiest at the beach by putting on sexy bikinis available for sale at http://www.verysexybikini.com. This statement holds true for the sole reason that as soon as you make your choice from the whole array of swim wears offered by us, they would perfectly complement your body, thereby making your figure attractive to the young and old alike. So, buy swim suit from us immediately and enjoy your day at the beach.

I have just discovered your blog. I love it! I want to use a 1950's swimsuit in a collage and would love to use this one. I gather it is a genuine vintage article. Did you find it on the web or is there someone I should contact re copyright? or am I just being overcautious?!
