Retro Beachwear

Movies are an endless source of inspiration and Gidget Goes Hawaiian, released in 1961, is a brilliant reference for checking out American surf and beach style of the day.

Inspired I fashioned a retro style two-piece from some vintage feedsack fabric found at L'uccello.  It combines an adaptation of the classic BLOOMER with THE BANDEAU.  

For the BLOOMER I added some extra length to the front and back rise.  The leg and waist openings are finished with satin bias binding and a HOW TO can be found right here.
