Pattern Description:

As seen in the pages of Happy Home...Lucy, the Classic Halter Dress! We've engineered this one to have multiple coverage options and fit all body types. We also love the way that Lifestyle fabrics are so suitable for this dress. Long or short it is stunning and every woman and looks amazing! A simple tie at the neck, elastic back and you are good to go. Take it everywhere, especially on the next vacation. It is a true show stopper that you can make in a flash!


Coverage - Two separate bodice patterns are included. The Classic Halter style has bikini-style cups that meet in the center. While cool and breezy, the classic version is still perfectly appropriate for all occasions. The Full Coverage style crosses over at the front, and also comes up higher under the arms to wrap more fully around the sides and back.

Skirt Length - The A-line skirt can be made in a range of lengths from mini to maxi. The longer the skirt, the more flare at the bottom. The short lengths make for great tops!

Fabric - The dress can be made from a single fabric, or multiple fabrics can be mixed and matched. We love using a contrasting fabric for the lining and/or waistband.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • XS (0-2) to 3XL (24W-26W)


  • 2.5 to 4.5 yards of fabric depending on size and length

You Will Also Need:

  • 1" wide elastic, basting tape or glue stick

Excellent Love from a Florida girl  April 24, 2012

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Lucy Halter. This fun dress is perfect for summers in Florida. It went together super quick so I can whip up a bunch in different lengths and fabrics for anything from hanging out w/ friends on the beach to a night out on the town w/ my hubby. The best thing about the Lucy Halter pattern is that you can customize it to FIT YOU!!! The bodice has 2 options, one daring and one modest, BOTH can be made to fit according to cup size which is nothing short of miraculous.
