Sepia Saturday: Grandma in her bathing suit

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...

I love the old bathing suits. Back when they really were for taking dips and not swimming. I wonder if this suit, like so many, was made from wool. I've never been able to wrap my head around swimming in wool.
