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.

    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.

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.
