Here is the pattern for (hopefully) Esther-Williamsable bathers. I don't know why bathers obsess me so when I hardly ever go swimming, but you can't let these things pass you by just in case you need them (and I know this sort of bather pattern is few and far between...)

...because they are 1970s patterns, multisized, and there are a squillion of them on eBay (that seller has a stack). Excellent price - $1.80 each! (the postage was more than the patterns, but at that price it is not surprising).
As well as these two there is what I believe to be an EstherWilliamsAble swimsuit pattern, and a frock with waist seamage (I haven't posted either of those pics because they are not very clear - I got these from somewhere else).
I've been thinking of a jacket in a thickish knit for The Perfect Travel Wardrobe which I will have one day (it's getting there, one trip at a time). Of course this also requires the Perfect Thick Knit, which I will now search for until the last possible date before departure (-1 week for sewing). Wish me luck...

I was just saying I needed some mother of pearl buttons wasn't I? I bought 6 of these on ebay, I'll put the pale side up on the pink cardi I'm knitting, but the other side would look intweeeeging on a black cardi, no? They say they are 1" which is perfect, but elsewhere it says 20mm. Not the same, people! But either way, I'm good.
