I found this dress in the dollar bin at Volunteers of America.
It was begging to be remade into a halter top.

and here's the back

and here's the design:

Recon Pictures:
Front, nothing complicated done, Mostly just making the straps and cutting the cute little sleeves off
http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y79/poseursteph/HPIM0376.jpg
Back:
The back had to be cut off across the armpits, the zipper had to be shortned,(that took me a long time how to figure out!) and the back is rouched to help hold up the back

EDIT: here are pictures of me wearing the dress (please ignore the fact that i'm wearing capris on under it and that i look like i'm sick, i was so excited to show off the dress that i forgot the rest of me would be in the picture! Cheesy)

That's really neat! I like how you flowed with the chevron design, but made it into something that totally looks better on you!

that is so cute. How did you shorten the zipper without it coming apart?

I like kitty in the pictures also.
