AT THE BEACH: Pattern 5781: Girl's Beach Suit

"Beach suits are as popular with the children as they are with adults. They are made on exactly the same lines" - so said the pattern text in Madame Weigel's Journal of Fashion, January 1932. The pattern came with or without a bolero. Girls enjoying the beach together - or perhaps, sisters!

 

This postcard is A5 in size (148 x 210mm), printed on quality 350gsm card with a glossy finish. The reverse side is printed with a pattern description.

Madame Weigel was busy in the Swiss mountains at this time, and may well have developed this outfit to wear herself. She loved sports for women and encouraged women to get out and about just as she did!
