This vintage sewing pattern includes a modest two piece swim suit and a cover up in two lengths and two sleeve lengths.
The bathing suit bottoms have a center back zipper, and elastic around the top. The bathing suit top closes to the back, of course.
The v neck cover up can be made in an above the knee-length, or full, maxi length. There is a short sleeve as well as a long sleeve to choose from. Version 1 shows this with a self belt.
They've shown the cover up trimmed in bias tape, in a couple of versions, plain in two more versions, and trimmed in rick rack on the other.
This is sized as an 8, which in 1970 meant a bust of only 31 and 1/2. If you know how to grade patterns, though, you can adjust this to any size you wish.
The colors on the envelope are red white blue and yellow. The envelope is in pretty good shape, with only slightly bent corners, and a store stamp near the top (front). For the most part, the graphics are undamaged, and able to be scanned to use for craft projects such as refrigerator magnets, or greeting cards, or bookmarks.
There are 13 pieces to this, originally, including a skinny strip to use as an elastic guide, that pattern piece, which is not integral to constructing this garment, is missing, but not an issue for any seamstress.
