***update: this pattern is now available in the pattern shop. Just in case you'd rather have every measurement you need at your fingertips instead of guessing:) Includes sizes 6 mos. up to 6 years, a yardage chart, and improved instructions.***
Bring on summer! The sweetheart halter is ready to take on the heat in style!
"oh my! Am I looking cute or what?!"
And of course it ties in the back with a nice big bow.
Ready to sew?
***And yet another outfit brought to you by the Studio Plus West Des Moines aka horrible lighting hotel. Sorry about that...Materials:
- 1/2 yard main fabric (for size 18 mos)
- Scrap of contrast fabric
- 1/2" ish elastic
1. Cut out your pieces. The strap needs to be cut along the bias (diagonal to the selvage), so it has some stretch. I sewed 2 pieces together. My strap was pretty long, but I wanted the tails of the bow to hang down in the back. I did a narrow hem, so if you like a chunkier hem I'd make the body piece a bit longer. And as long as we're changing things up I'd suggest making the front body piece a little narrower (13") and the back a bit wider (15"). Trust me on this:)
2. Gather the front body piece to match the length of your bodice (7" for me).
Wow- I think she's looking even more mischievous than normal!
