last summer's ruffled halter

Last summer I made this adorable ruffled halter for my daughter and never got around to blogging about it. It was a free downloadable pattern from Oliver & S that was featured in Stitch magazine's summer issue I believe, and was the main reason I purchased the magazine. I used fabric from Heather Bailey's Nicey Jane line which debuted last spring. (love it!) I love how the halter turned out and it was pretty simple and quick to make too, a bonus. I can definitely see more of these halters in her future this summer!

**I snapped this picture with my phone while we were waiting for a table at a delicious restaurant (Mango Mango's) in St. Augustine, FL. You can see she brought all of her essentials to the restaurant: purse, blankie, and sass.

**Oh, and one more thing. I got this fabric at a steal for $5/yard and didn't even use an entire yard for this halter, so this cost me less than 5 bucks! See the value in learning to sew?!!

**Oh, and if you ever go to Mango Mango's, definitely order the corn cakes.


  1. Hi, I just found your blog (I forgot how I got here!), and I wanted to say this halter top is awfully precious. I hope things in your life are settling down a bit, and I hope to see more of what you're making soon!

  2. I love it. I've had that shirt on my "to do" list since last year- maybe I'll get it done in time for this summer!
