Cruel Summer

I know Summer is over but i can't help but think that this vintage swimsuit designed "in 1936 by Margit Fellegi for Cole of California" would be a welcomed addition into my wardrobe. I can't help it! It looks so much like our Dasiy Dots print and it's funky and gorgeous all at the same time! "Using an innovative technique called "Matletex," it allowed the fabric to be shirred (gathering an area of fabric using elasticized threads in parallel rows) to create a flattering silhouette. Traditionally swimsuits were created using wool; this new process allowed for fabrics such as cotton and rayon with brightly printed patterns to be used for the first time."
