Vintage Swimwear Patterns: Historical Patterns and Techniques

Another great reference book from Jill Salen. Wonderful historic research and the photo's are just right.

If you do try any of the patterns, I recommend you ensure you have enough fabric to try 3-4 mock up's. In my manufacturing experience it is very important to establish the pattern fit to the specific stretch fabric. Not all stretch fabrics give the same fit, so you will be cutting a pattern for your fabric.

This book is a great coffee table book and it is an even better to do book. There are lots of items shown and instructions to have a go. This has to be one of the underrated crafts, worth having a try.

A little subdued in parts, but very typical of the period. It was interesting watching the interpretation of the parts by different actors & directors.

5.0 out of 5 stars An 80's Classic, 26 Feb 2014

This was just wonderful to watch. Timothy Dalton was just great in this part, his energy in this part was just the right sort of contrast to the other characters.. The plot was not as pacey as the later ones, but I enjoy seeing how these classic stories are crafted in the writing, directing and acting.
