A halter top I made using New Look 6464, View C. It was super simple. Only two pieces—the front and the back. And I made a strap by cutting a strip of fabric on the bias and sewing a narrow tube. The pattern called for using ribbon for the strap, but I thought that would look too homemade. I like the fabric strap much better. I love this top so much that I’m going to make many more out of different fabrics. I’m also going to try some of the other views.
