  • How to make a halter top. Summery Top From A Skirt - Step 1
    Step 1

    Iron your skirt if needed and lay flat. Measure from your shoulder to underarm. This measurement is how much you will unpick from the top of the skirt at the side seams down towards the bottom. Once you reach the desired length remember to strengthen with a few stitches so that it does not unravel.

    Create darts at the top if it is too baggy.
