Sew 1938 - Je m'habille avec rien

Anyone set for the beach this week might fancy dressing in a couple of large knotted "peasant hankies" (or bandanas to you and me) in the manner of this 1938 Marie Claire magazine fashion article.
Currently have one of my scarf sewing projects in production - I am trying to make some 40s camiknickers from instructions in a little booklet, something has gone wrong because the garment at present would fit someone with a 30" bust and 60" hips.  But the bias cutting is lovely, so few measurement adjustments obviously needed & will report back soon!
