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.
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.]
6) Sew POCKET:
a) Sew a 2-inch strip of floral (or not) fabric to the top part of the pocket. Sew to the dress.
6) Hem dress.
7) Insert string through the gap on the necklines. Tie at the side.
