Halter dress

Patter was very well made. I even add a full skirt for a different look.

Halter Top

After finding that the dress was indeed too short and too tight, I converted it into just a halter top. If you would like to view this rendition, please go to my Etsy shop named AdollablebyRita.

Halter Dress

The first thing I noticed on this pattern was that the bodice piece noted cut 1 on fold. Obviously that was incorrect because it should have read cut 2 on fold. The second item I encountered was that the Halter Top front and back pieces did not line up with the bodice piece. I eventually added 1/4 inch to the back pieces and 3/8 inch along the front. The rest of the Halter Top went smoothly. Then I tried to sew the Halter Dress but when I finished it did not fit my brand new American Girl Doll. It was too tight and too short .I haven't gone back to make the alterations on these pieces. I really liked the pattern and think it is very trendy; but it is obvious that the designer should have given more information. Did she use a stretch fabric that had more stretch than mine?? A review of this pattern by the designer needs to take place.
