Here are some bathers I made using the Alison pattern on the Burdastyle website. I altered the pattern by omitting the back tie and adding a tie to the halter neck instead of a clasp. I think they turned out really well for my first try at making bathers. Next time I would alter the pattern to allow for more coverage up top. You can read more at my blog Sew/Cook
