Closet Core Patterns
The Bombshell Swimsuit sewing pattern from Closet Core Patterns. The Bombshell is modeled on a classic 1950s silhouette, a style that harkens back to the golden era of flattering yet modest swimsuits.
The pattern includes 3 variations: a gathered bust maillot, a halter neck, and a high waist bottom which you can mix and match with your favourite bikini top. With flattering ruched seams, a booty encasing seat and a skirt-like front, the Bombshell hugs your curves while providing full (but sexy) coverage. Fully lined, it will keep you decent in or out of the water.
