I made this top from a medium weight stretch knit. It's made from 2 pieces, one is the waist-band, and the other is the halter piece. It can be worn 2 ways, either as a halter, or by pulling it down over the shoulders, as a 'wrap' style top. It was super easy and fast to make.

that looks great! but how is the back of it like?

Look for me in the white forest, hiding in a hollow tree.

I'll try to take a photo tomorrow. There's no back at all. The main piece is basically 1.5 metres long. One end is attached to the front of the waistband, it goes up and around the back of your neck, and then the other end is also attached to the waistband at the front. Does that make sense?

oo i love it as a wrap, though i puzzled as to how it becomes a halter, perhaps i'm just dense...haha. anyways, great job, a tutorial would be excellent!! though now i have to go buy some appropriate fabric...

very clever!  how wide is the strip of material you used for the top piece?  thanks.

Hello. I have received some orders from friends, so next time I make one up I will take photos and do a tutorial.

The main piece is 150cm long, approx. 60cm wide at the shoulders, and 50cm wide at the ends which attach to the waistband. The waistband is 22cm high, folded in half to make 11cm. Measure around your hips to get the length for the waistband.

Here is a picture of the rear. As you can see, there's not much to it at the back. I wear it over a t-shirt.
