swimming used to be so glamorous

Oh gorgeous swimsuit, why do you cost $226 USD? Sob. Sob! What I need is a pattern to make one of these myself. Hmmm. This one by Burda Style is all right, but not quite what I'm looking for - too modern, almost.

Hm. Any suggestions, readers?

It's not as easy as just a straight out pattern, but have you seen:

combine that with the multi-panel or some other top style and maybe..? Sorry, that's the best I got. ;)
