DIYStyle Classic :: Quick Stitch Halter



Baby it’s hot out there! Stay in and SEW instead.

We knew this halter top was a super fast sew when we uploaded it “back when”, it’s still a classic look for today. Plus, with silk, soft bamboo, rayon, and performance wick-away fabrics, this top is just as perfect at the beach as it is under a work jacket! Grab the FREE project HERE!

* Choose fabrics for this simple halter with your activity in mind. Especially for being outside in this hot-humid summertime weather. Use a performance fabric for the halter that will help you stay cool and dry. The wick-away properties are the best! For work and indoors a silk, bamboo, or rayon (mixed with some spandex for stretch and recovery) is a perfect choice.

* This project is awesome for those fabrics with BIG prints that beg for a large canvas. The draped halter has a lot of front space just waiting for a gorgeous piece of fabric to showcase.

* Cut your fabrics super-fast with our new MAGNETIC DIYStyle Pattern and Cutting System! Check it out HERE! No distortion when cutting out, fantastic for managing knits and slippery fabrics.

* Silky fabrics drape beautifully but can fray easily. Take care to finish the edges before too much handling. We used a rolled hem on the serger or a tight zig-zag to finish.

* To add a bit of coverage, wear your new halter with a strapless cami, or a strapless bralette. You will feel covered and oh so pretty!

* Instead of a chain necklace for the halter casing, make a tie from self-fabric. Thread through the casing, and tie at the side neck for a soft feminine look.

Have fun, and stay cool! Happy Sewing!
