**This pattern is for only the top half of a one piece swimsuit. You must purchase one of our modular bottoms pattern to make this into a one piece swimsuit**
The Gathered Halter Top is a lined top that is gathered at the bust. The straps tie behind the neck, halter style, and there is no back. The lining is not gathered so it lays smooth and tight against the chest for security and support. There are no pads or underwires, so the support comes mainly from compression.
Our patterns are meant to be building blocks to designing your perfect one piece swimsuit. Each of our different top and bottom patterns are sold separately, but they all fit together and can be mixed and matched. This gives you freedom to perfect the fit, and still keep up with current trends! Once you nail the fit of the bottoms, you can use that pattern forever, and add any of our top patterns to make a one of a kind one piece swimsuit. This also allows you the opportunity to mix and match sizes if your bust and hips put you in different sizes, and it offers endless mix and match potential with fabrics!
