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.
