If you’ve seen my clothes you realize I have a thing for halters. This one I wanted so badly to use a yellow fabric but I couldn’t stop there so I actually stenciled flowers on to the material using fabric paint. It turned out quite lovely indeed and looks fabulous on. Unfotunately I didn’t use it in my fashion show. Bummer! The top of the dress criss crosses in front and wraps around the neck. The back is open and cuts very low. The dress itself is longer than it looks and I would say that you’d have to be 5’9 or so for it to actually look right or better yet I should probably make it shorter so people like myself (5’5") can wear it.
Stretchy like material. It was actually a bit of a pain to work with. My sewing machine just wanted to eat it up.
