Halter Sun Dress

This pattern was very easy to make. The directions are very clear. I like that there are two ways to do the elastic in the back of the dress. I made the shorter version of the dress. My granddaughter loved the dress and has requested second one.

Great summer dress!

Made three of these dresses! Wonderful summer dress with lovely shirred back. Another hit from my sewing room. Gaby looks stunning in this tropical yellow sundress.

My Angel Girl Halter Sun Dress

Overall a great pattern. Loved the included sizes on the rectangle pieces, this made using a rotary cutter and ruler so easy. I made the short version today, which from cutting it out to completely finished took about 2 hours. I really liked the 2 options for the back elastic, I used the single 1/4 inch option. Thanks for the great design.
