Halter_neck_sundress_1_large

Description

Using a pattern given free with Sew magazine – 2 months ago. I resized this pattern ( it started at size 14) to a size 12. I debated about the fact that I did not want to wear a bra, so wore it yesterday (22nd Aug ) as it was such a hot day and was fairly pleased with the result – although I might alter a bra into a halter neck style !

Material Notes

Pure cotton

    Nice dress and fits well. I love halter dresses but they are not easy to fit: the back often wrinkles, how did you manage to make it so nice?

    Well a back fastening on the bra will not show so I’ll just make a halter neck from elastic -instead of shoulder straps.

    Its lovely on you, i have altered a few bra’s to wear with my dresses. I normally just use elastic the same width as the bra back, take of tbe hook& eyes add elastic then reattach. the fabric you used for your dress is lovely as well x
