Everything you need for the beach with this pattern from Bluetree Sewing Studio!  A chic bikini or one-piece swimsuit, plus super groovy cover-ups are great for everyone from teens to grandmas, seriously!

I'm mad for this adorable skirted swimsuit with little jacket.. so chic and so Hollywood.. !  And that graphic is perfection, from Roma's Maison.

Simplicity 1607

Here's a similar look from Sydcam123.  Love love LOVE it.  So flirty and pin-up perfect!

Simplicity 3273
The younger set can wear a similar look as well, in this ultra-cute little ruffled number from Clutterina.  By the way, this is actually a mother-daughter pattern, but I'm not sure about the number for the mother size.

The skirted look goes into the 80s... with this unusual pattern.. I love the back interest as well, from Sandritocat.
