Based on sketches from my Vintage American Summer collection, this body suit is a modern interpretation on a retro style. Using red jersey for the straps and bra portion and striped knit for the bodice, I draped and patterned the body suit. It is self lined with a cotton lined gusset that snaps. The skirt has an elastic ribbon waistband and a crinkle silk body. There is more gathering in the front so as to add interest and shape. The body suit may be worn without the skirt.
