Sister Mintaka presents the Soma Swimsuit by Papercut Patterns.
The Soma Swimsuit is a versatile swimsuit pattern with three different variations! Make a splash this summer in a glamorous one piece or flaunt it with two different bikini tops with either a high or mid rise pant.
The one piece swimsuit has a flattering cross over elasticated back, ballet style cross over front with cut out triangle detailing and an elasticated waist seam to accentuate the waist.
The first bikini variation is of a similar style, with a supportive cross over bust with cut out triangle detailing and a cross over elasticated back fastened with a bikini clip.
The second variation is a bustier style with bust cups for added support, a centre front triangle detail and elastic in the waist seam. There is no back fastening so is comfortable and easy to take on and off.
