Amy & Amy revisited

From pattern envelope:

Simple and breezy. Casual or dressy. A simple halter with refined lines to enhance the romance of warm weather.

The pink/black version is not altered, the green/turquoise version contains alteration of the halter straps to “normal” shoulder straps and the then neccessary alterations on the cups and the darts. Both versions are fully lined with thin black cotton batiste, though the pattern does not require any lining. The lining adds strength to the bust-area and makes the inside look “clean”.

Pattern information: Amy Butler – Cabo Halter

Material Notes

Cotton poplin

Cotton batiste

Quilting cotton


Invisible zipper

Mother of pearl button for green version

    I loooooove Amy Butler fabrics! The photos don’t show your red hair while wearing the greeny-coloured one, but I bet it must look awesome!

    They both look great— I especially like the mix of the fabrics on the green one.

    Thanks, ladies!

    It depends on your figure if it will fit.

    I needed to shorten it as I would shorten a burda pattern. The “cups” are sized B, so I adjusted them a bit as well. Overall I had no fitting problems with a size S.

    I would heartily suggest making a muslin first to adjust the fitting/the pattern.

    Lovely and the lining is a perfect extra. I was looking for Cabo last night in search of a neckholder top. Never used Amy Butler patterns before: Do they fit ok?

    This is so lovely, I adore the fabric, shape and colour of the green one, especially the buttons!
