the weather's been pretty warm recently so i thought i'd make this to celebrate not having to wear a coat anymore! it was really easy and quick to do, and i'm super happy with how it turned out Wink total cost=1! bargain!
sorry the pics are kind of elongated, i cropped out all the background because my kitchen isn't really that interesting



TUTE!

this is my first, so if you need anything explaining in more detail i'm happy to help!



1. start out with a width of material suitable for your backpiece, and a front piece which is wider (i used about double) and two long strips for straps

2. simply hold two corners of your front piece and bring it together creating a drape. you can hold this against you and see if you would like more/less material (depends on how much cleavage you want to show, but with the halter that's adjustable anyway  Wink ) you then gather in the two corners and sew to make the drape effect.



3. make a backpiece (i simply traced from a tshirt and luckily it worked ok), hem the top

4. sew the drapey front to the back (sorry my paint diagram is so dodgy!)



5. sew the long strips to the top of your draped front (where the gathering is) and hem the bottom

yay you're done!

That looks awesome on you, and I love the fabric as well.  Too bad I live in the US, I'm going to have to start looking for fabric online.

I really like this,

 i sometimes think bare shoulders and a tight fit is too much for me at once, but this halter solves that problem. Could you pretty please post a tute, or at least generally explain the shapes you used to make it?
