Swim Trunks for Boys... or Everyone?
Today for you, dear readers, I have a 1940's French knitting pattern for boy's swim trunks. I know, there are very few 11 year old boys would easily be wrangled into a pair of these but I thought, "Hey, aren't these just amusing?" and "What else could you use this pattern for?"
The diagram below from the pattern gives the measurements in centimeters, so could one conceivably fiddle with them to scale the pattern for a larger man, or a very bold lady?
What say you?
If you would like to download the whole French pattern, click here.
Or you can check out this digital download for a 1940's full size trunks pattern for men, from FabForties.
And since my thought progression on this topic has naturally taken me to Bond (I'm weak, I know), here is a picture of the man himself, rocking a similar fashion.
Oh, sweet Jesus.
