1950 Men's Swim Set Pattern

Be the coolest person on the beach with this men's shirt and shorts swim set. The diagonal seams of the raglan sleeves add a sporty touch to this shirt, and add ease of movement, perfect for those with broader shoulders, but flattering on all body types. The swim shorts feature a button-flap pocket at the right front and the waist band has both elastic and a drawstring for the perfect fit that feels comfortable and secure. Contrasting fabric on the pocket bands and collar are perfect for a pop of fun colour.
