When I bought the Sweetheart Halter pattern, I was a little disappointed that it didn't have actual pattern pieces...Although it's not difficult to cut out rectangles and squares, I am lazy. This pattern sat in my pattern stash for a year before I finally decided to use it. It was quick and easy to assemble this top and the pattern mixing options are limitless. I wanted to make a girly Army inspired top for Violet and I think I nailed it! She loves it because it's like Daddy's uniform and because Mommy tells her how cute she looks in the top.
I followed all of the instructions in the pattern except for making bias tape for the tie. I didn't want to use up a lot of fabric so I just cut small strips and sewed them together. The top looks fine to me and I have enough fabric to make something for Nik.
I cut this out in a size 3T so it would last more than one summer. The back drooped a little but the top fit pretty well. I can't wait to make more of these tops next summer!
