I made a halter top with my own pattern and it came out a little too revealing for my taste, hence the t-shirt underneath. I have since tweaked the pattern and will be making another, less revealing top with it later. I also need to widen and lengthen the straps a bit.

Oy that is quite revealing :-) but not bad for a first try. May I suggest bust darts too, to nip in the fabric near the armpits? (Where the white sleeves end now) Otherwise it will be revealing from a side-view.
Good luck Smiley

I was thinking of darts but didn't put them. But I will when I make another.

I think if you add more to the bust panels in the center so there isn't quite such a large gap, you'll be more comfortable. Looking good so far!  Wink

I bought a dress that had this issue, and took a piece of contrasting fabric to make a modesty panel across the middle.  It looks very much like a camisole underneath.  You could probably save this with some similar addition, maybe lace or  something like it.

Thanks for the tips, ladies. I like to say I didn't fail but learned how NOT to do it.
