Halfmoon Atelier Well’s Bay Bikini
£12.50 – £17.50
Buy the Well’s Bay Bikini sewing pattern from Halfmoon Atelier. This reversible bikini is strikingly minimal yet versatile.
Living in a hard-to-reach area, Meghann Halfmoon originally designed this bikini to use the stretch of strips of swimwear fabric – “elast-ish” – rather than special elastics or other notions (although elastic can be used). The wireless top has under-bust darts, thin shoulder straps and ties at the back. The bottoms are low-rise hipsters that provide full coverage, thanks to the curved seam of the side panels. Ideal for the minimalist who cannot choose, the reversibility gives you four different wearable combinations and plenty of opportunity for colour-blocking.
The pattern also comes with bonus tips for creating panties with the bikini bottoms pattern!
