This one has got to be one of my favorites...

I understand my grandmother made her suit herself.

She was always good with a needle.

Look at her monogram...

It's all about the pose. She could sew it because they were made out of cotton - very water absorbent and increased in weight ten fold! Fine for the beach as long as you didn't go in the water very far. I think I like this better than the skimpy suit my teenage granddaughter wears.
