sew an a-line dress with a drawstring halter neckline

I love halter dresses. I made this using a muted gray fabric, which, according to my boyfriend, makes me look like a nun. Boys are silly because they love us in any dress, no matter the color.

This dress is very easy to make. You can make it short for a mini-dress.



Instructions

    1) Take body measurements and trace a pattern that looks like this. The sleeves area of the back part should be narrower for a sexier effect.

    2)Sew dart. Front piece only.

    3)Sew sleeves. Remember: Snip before folding, for a cleaner finish.

    4) Sew both sides of dress and attach a side zipper.

    5) Fold necklines and sew, leaving allowance for the string to pass through. [String: you can make one out of the same fabric as the dress or use ribbon or other available strings.]

Awesome - In my favourites and on the wish list to make. I think this would be a pretty girly one for work with a nice jacket over the top.
