Featuring over 25 swimming costumes, two-piece garments and bikinis from 1880 to 1970, these fabulous and historically accurate patterns chart the progression of swimwear over the last 130 years, including garments for women, men and children.

The fully annotated patterns are accompanied by photographs and practical advice on any techniques or alterations necessary for making up the garments. The book also features two projects with step-by-step instructions.

Fashion students and historians will find the period details and historical background of each garment an invaluable resource, while the patterns are perfect for any costume designer working for stage or screen.
