Sweetheart Halter Pattern Review

*This post contains affiliate links.  Also, I made this 8 months ago.*

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!
