This is a 1950’s style halter top beach buster that I made using a pattern I recently designed. The pattern is based off of the 1950’s Hollywood style with a bit of Marilyn thrown into the mix. I sewed the beach bustier first and I plan on adding a skirt to make it into a dress, but it also looks great with shorts!
You can find the pattern for instant download here:
