This is SO CUTE! I hope you wear it LOTS. I love the way the shorts wrap around, and also the little cap sleeves on the top -- AND it ties in the front. There's not MUCH midriff showing, and I think you could easily wear this wherever you want to. :o)

Very interesting, and your diligence is amazing. It turned out quite cute (minus the CT) Enjoy!

Thank you! 21wale, if you do a search for e.g. "1930s people exercising" you can find a surprising number of photos, several of them with people in outfits rather like this. Getty Images (NAYY) for one has lots.

I agree, this was a very interesting review. It would have so fascinating to see someone wear this for real back in the day.

Wow! This is really interesting. It looks like it would be nice and cool - and a lot of fun to wear.

An impressively adventurous project. It sounds like a good advertisement for stretch fabrics. I can remember wearing a swimsuit made with woven fabric but it was a very long time ago.
