one super easy way is to use a scarf that is big enough to wrap around your right under the bust. So either a big scarf or a little person, and then fold over the top corner and sew it down leaving your self a channel to run a pretty cord through and tie around your neck, and then tie the two side corners behind your back, ta da, scarf halter!

here is my most basic diagram describing what i mean

woo i'm texas bound in about 4 days.  anyways, i don't have any pictures, but i took a scarf and used it as the top fabric of a dress pattern i had.  it worked out pretty well because since scarfs are kinda sheer, you also have a lining too.  but that's for the dress.  anyways, i guess my point is you can always take a pattern and use it as a guide and have the scarf act just like fabric.

words are flying out like endless rain into a paper cup....
