How many times have you made something and the idea was just fab at the time? I decided to make a halter top out of a scrap sundress I made earlier. It seemed to be a grand idea. I even tried it on while holding the back together. It still looked doable. Started hemming the edges and that even went smoothly. Seaming went well also. The disaster came when I tried it on. I clearly didn’t have enough room to move around in. Something that is draped over your body is VERY different than when it is sewn, lol.
This was my vision.
Looks nice and simple right. I have no clue why I thought I could use just this one piece. No account was taken for the back, I thought an easy fix would be a seam down the back.
When that failed I stared at it a few minutes and decided since I had the seam all finished I could cut straight across add some elastic and have a mini skirt.
Here’s how it turned out.
If you have a desire to design your own halter top, unlike me, here’s some examples.
