*Pattern is partially cut and complete. Size 18, Bust 40in/101.5cm*
Go to the beach/pool party in style with this stunner vintage sewing pattern, Simplicity 7697. Copyrighted 1968, this swimsuit design is very on-trend with it's romper style. As this was the late 60s, knit fabrics were not yet invented, so this swimsuit pattern is for a woven fabric, and features a back zipper. Completing the look, this pattern also includes a beach jacket/cover-up in two lengths that may be sleeveless, with panties. Please see photos for more design details.

Pattern condition: pattern is partially cut and complete. Cut for the bathing suit only. Coat/dress and panties remain uncut. Pieces are in great used condition - it doesn't even look like the original owner transferred the dart markings! There is a small tear at the edge of the back facing and shoulder strap pieces (easily fixable with tape). The pattern envelope is worn, with some tears and holes. Along both side seams at the top, there are tears roughly 2 inches or so in length. The bottom righthand corner has worn through to a hole. Envelope is otherwise intact. Some discolouration. Please see photos for more details. Overall, great used condition!
