easy, breezy halter

I made this easy-breezy halter top for Ava, my grand-niece, who just turned 2. Timing was perfect since we were in the throes of an inferno-like heat wave here on the right coast. Pattern is from One-Yard Wonders, and only takes about 30 minutes to make. But be advised: the listed sizing is off, so if you make the toddler version, you will need to add ribbon "extenders" to the back of the halter. The book also features the same pattern in an adult version – and if this heat wave continues, I will probably make myself one, too!

So cute! The halter and Ava. I haven't had my sewing machine out in years. I don't really have anywhere to set it up except the dining room table and then that means dragging it away every time we need to eat. Do you have a space set up for sewing?

No, Carrie. I'm like you....keep in in the closet and drag it out onto the dining room table when I need to. Such is life in an open-floor plan loft. One of the disadvantages :(

So cute, Dynise! I used to make tops like that for myself in the early 70's (in younger, slimmer days!). I don't sew much anymore-- I admire! I hope you're enjoying the last of summer! Hugs from Bryanna

PS: Dynise, would you mind emailing me via my blog contact page?
