RC1247 - Early 1920s Ladies' Swimsuit with Bloomers in Larger Sizes Pattern by Reconstructing History. Fits busts up to 60".
Reconstructing History uses the original patterns as a basis. Then they grade the pattern in modern sizes, up to 60″ bust and 54″ waist, so they’ll fit far more sizes than the original patterns ever did. Kass personally goes through each pattern, improving the instructions, modernizing the vocabulary and adding in all those things that the old pattern companies assumed their customers knew. Yet we don’t remove the flavour of the original pattern, so you can truly experience using a vintage pattern without all the trouble of resizing and “translating” it.
All sizes (busts 30″ to 60″) come in the same envelope. Also included are assembly instructions, embellishment suggestions, and the extensive historical notes you’ve come to expect from Reconstructing History.
