Gotta Love A Halter Top!

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!


  1. Your top is definitely cuter. I like the longer length and love your fabric choice. So pretty.
