This is my version of duckjustaduck's pinup halter dress found here:

It's so adorable i thought it's definitely a MUST-DO!

So I took one of my dad's shirts (with permission of course Tongue) and started cutting away. I was so excited that  I couldn't stop working til I finished! (I didn't even remember to take a before picture)

The shirt wasn't long enough to be a dress or tunic so i opted for a top instead. I also had to do more darts in the chest area to make it fit better.


Then I realized that the halter strap may be a little disproportionate to the print and the top itself so I modified it a little bit and changed the strap to a thicker one.

Any opinions? Thicker strap = more balanced?
