A nice book on historical swimwear with some interesting information on the history of sea bathing. Is good for a look through and comes with two projects complete with patterns and instructions. Overall I would recommend this to any one interested in vintage fashion or people interested in making costumes or challenging their sewing skills. Each swimsuit featured comes with a scaled rough pattern.
