Pattern Format (Size 0 - 20)

The Bombshell Swimsuit is modeled on a classic 1950’s silhouette, a style that harkens back to the golden era of glamourous swimwear.

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 ruched seams, a booty encasing seat and a skirt-like front, the Bombshell is fully lined and provides an appealing amount of coverage.

This is cute

This is my first attempt at making swimwear and my first with lycra. It went well and was much easier to handle than I imagined. I made a bikini by using the top part and just making a strap around the chest underneath it.

Wonderful pattern!

The PDF was easy to put together. Sizing was spot on. The directions were great! I made my swimsuit on a Saturday and can't wait to make more. Love the swimsuit style as I have purchased many of the same RTW style, for myself.
I added foam cups and made the straps crisscross instead of tie around my neck. Thanks for making an awesome pattern.

Bombshell swimsuit

Very, very nice fitting and easy instructions to follow (my first memade swimwear). The only negative is that it’s a lot of fabric and it takes quite a lot of time to dry, but I’m thinking of making another one with lighter lining because I love the model.
