Sewing for Me: Plaid Halter

If you read this post I wrote over a month ago, I am sure you are ready to see the dress I was supposed to make based on the Anthropologie dress I saw online. Well I finally finished it over the weekend.

I used New Look pattern # 6980 as a base. I changed the neckline to a high halter and I lowered the back piece by an inch. I also added a shelf bra in the front, because I hate fidgeting around with a strapless bra when I am out.  I also created a super long strap (approximately 120″) for the neckline and it can be worn 2 ways. You can tie it around your neck and loop it through the back loop and tie it off or you can tie it around your neck, put it through the back loop and bring it around the front and tie it.

I must say that I am very pleased with the way the dress turned out. What do you think?
