Summer is coming and this halter top/dress is the perfect fashion item for your little one! Quick and easy to make, fun and easy to wear. This little top goes perfect with jeans, shorts and skirts. Make it a little longer and a little skirt under this halter dress will turn heads and elicit compliments. (I know my daughter's did every time she wore it!) This pattern was designed and written by me. It has been tested multiple times. The following are a couple of comments that I received from testers: "I liked how quickly it worked up, and how adorable the finished product is!" "First of all thank you for letting me test the pattern. I really enjoyed making it. Infact I loved it." "So cute and so easy! I can't wait to see my grand daughter in it!"

V-stitch) V-stitch: 2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc Notes from the Designer: About color: This top can be made using solid colors or variegated colors, or a combination of both. I have highlighted areas to "change color if you desire" It might be helpful to decide colors and color changes before you start the project. There is no right or wrong way to use color so have fun with it! Fit: The nice thing about halter tops is their versatility in size. The tie can be tied up higher or down lower for a longer lasting fit. It was suggested to me by one of my testers that I mention extra ties in the back can be added as well Fastening off: Always leave yourself a long tail when fastening off, it makes it easier to weave in all of your ends to give a more finished look.
