Now THIS is hot! wear it over a cami or go really brave and just wear

a bra underneath. I just love this set - it's great for a summer party or a night out. It's hard to find these things in the thrift shop, so just make one... you get the style you want, and you get to pick the color and size.

This listing is for the crochet pattern only. It is a .pdf file that is available for immediate download after purchase.
This pattern came from a 1973 magazine that is no longer in circulation, so in order to make it available for more vintage loving knitters, I am transcribing the instructions exactly as written in the original pattern book and offering them here.

This pattern is sized for a 34/36 inch bust.
To change the size, change yarn width or needles to get the gauge you need.
Gauge: 5 patt and 15 rows to 4" over shell (tank) patt worked on No E crochet hook; 25 sts and 12 rows to 4" over jacket patt worked on No E crochet hook

crochet hook size E
Original yarn:
Bernat Meadowspun - shell = 5 skeins; jacket = 9 skeins
You can google vintage yarn to get the specification, then match it up with the modern yarn of your choice.
