Description

A gathered neckline halter dress. This is made in a dressy, drapey silk, but could be made in cotton lawn or other drapey fabric. I used the 60’s dress as a starting point and altered the front by removing the shoulder sections and adding extra width at the neck – getting rid of the bust darts, bu adding them into the neck ease. I lowered the back and increased the back darts to ensure a good fit. I also used a centre back zip rather than a side one. I also made the dress a touch longer.
