This halter top is Pattern #105 from the new July issue of BurdaStyle and this floral print viscose poplin from Sew Much Fabric is the perfect fabric for it! This pattern needs a lightweight, drapey fabric to show off the pleated detail on the bodice and the poplin fills the bill. Here is a line drawing for a better look:
I left off the ties and lengthened mine 2" but otherwise made no changes to the pattern. I will tell you that the side zip is not necessary. The cut-in shoulder style and deep V in front lets this top easily go over your head. Skip the zip!
I'm wearing my top with Grainline Studios Maritime shorts made from black double cloth linen that I got from Sew Much Fabric several years ago. Love that stuff!
This July issue of BurdaStyle has lots of cute summer makes:
Personally, I think my halter top is every bit as cute as the one in the magazine!
Maybe even cuter!
Thanks for stopping by and until next time happy sewing!
