Love, love, love! This little feature from Harper's Bazaar not only shows us the swimsuit, but gives a flat image of the terrific fabric it's made of. The fabric is an Everglaze cotton by Tarnmoor and features various ships in yellow on white. Greta Plattry used the fabric to make the adorable two piece swimsuit in 1955. She paired it with a yellow corduroy beach jacket. Suit sold for $12 and jacket for $17 in 1955 (about $106 and $150 in today's dollar.)
