I made this bikini without a pattern. I don’t know what I was thinking but it turned out pretty good I think. It is a halter top, with tie under bust, and built in cups. The bottoms are low rise. I used a bikini I already own to trace the general outline. There is a possibility with some minor alterations that this could be a reversible bikini with two seperate textiles on either side. This bikini is double layered.
If you use my instructions and pattern please give me credit thank you
