8101 Halter-neck Swimsuit PDF Pattern


The 8101 set is sure to make a splash with its three flattering and easy-to-wear variations! Tap into your inner Jane Mansfield with the halter silhouette, which features soft gathers at the bust and delicate ruching and ties on the hips. The one-piece comes with two back variations–an elegantly modest high back or a sassy lower cut.

Is a two piece more your style? Worry not, beach babe! The 1801 also comes with a pattern for high-waisted bikini bottoms and an adorable top with crisscrossing straps. If you’re looking for a bikini that makes going to the community pool feel like lounging on a yacht in the French Riviera, then this is the swimsuit for you.

All versions have a deep shaped V-neckline with soft gathers under the bust, side seam ties at the hip that can be worn down for a vintage style low-cut leg or scrunched up for a modest bikini cut leg.  Lined cups and crotch, with separate pattern pieces for B/C, D/DD, DDD/E cup sizes.
