I love this because it's my first piece of wearable clothing! I've never really sewn anything before, but now I know that I can make something like this I'm just so excited to keep learning and making stuff. Smiley



It came out surprisingly well given my lack of sewing knowledge, buuuut I got impatient at the end and accidentally cut the back way higher than the front. Oops!

Here's a picture of the back:

I didn't bother hiding the zipper, although I suppose that could be done fairly easily afterwards. The criss cross halter straps look uneven here, but I'm preeeetty sure that it was being pulled by something. I hope, at least!

I really like this pattern. I think it wouldn't be too hard to make either without a pattern, I might change a couple things on it though. I think that you did a really good job, its very nice and the fabrics are perfect!

That's awesome! It's not my style, but looking at it just makes me smile. I love the styling of the top/straps. I hope you get a lot of use out of it.
