Haltered State, Burda 6968

Southern, Califo...






A re-issue of a 1960’s pattern from Burda’s 1960’s vintage collection: halter style tops

Easy to sew: It only consists of a front piece, two back pieces joined with a back zipper starting below a six-inch “keyhole” opening. Since I was using a fabric with some stretch and was able to slip in and out of the top easily, I omitted the zipper and below the keyhole opening continued with a center back seam.

Designed to fit those who are taller, with longer torsos. I performed a petite adjustment between the waist and lower armscye.

Have to gather and place the neckband precisely to the corresponding markings on the neckline (front and two back edges). It helps to baste the neckband and try on the top, noting the distribution of the gathers, placement of the neckband so that the front armholes are level.

Material Notes

Stretch cotton sateen
