Sophie's two piece bathing/play suit is made of vintage white pique. The lined top is trimmed to match the overdress, and is further embellished with small buttons and tiny embroidered rose knots. Thin straps meet at the back snap closure. The shorts are fully lined, and close with a snap in the back waistband.
Truly in the 'SAILOR' spirit today, Sophie wears atop her hair, a jaunty white felt sailors cap. It is embellished with a large chambray bow, pink and blue jacquard ribbon, and a large fluted vintage button. She also has with her a matching hair ribbon to wear when she goes in the water....she doesn't want to risk losing her hat to the wind and the sea!
Wow...Mrs. Bell was right! Just look at Sophie's sailboat!! In her sturdy "eyelet lace" trimmed pink wagon, Sophie is toting a LARGE blue sailboat..decorated with pink flowers and of course...her name!! Also tucked in the wagon is a rolled beach towel, and a small beach bag that carries "necessities"...an apple, cookies, and the classic "beach book"!!!
