Sewing Level:Intermediate (because of the neckband)
Fabric: Hart’s Fine Cotton
I made size and View (if applicable): 14 View B with front neck slit
My mods: Added shelf bra

Notes: Nice little halter top that is fun to sew! And pretty quick too if you don’t add the internal bra (still a fast make with it though). It fit great- no fitting mods were done.
I showed how to draft a shelf bra in the How to Draft a Camisole from a T-Shirt stream. (Just search camisole here on the website and it’s linked in the video descriptions).
- Trim off that side shape on the front side seam that is there to give bust shape
- I enjoyed the internal bra so much I’d experiment with making the front two separate pieces for more definition
- Because i added the bra, I’d consider putting the front and back on the fold and sewing the slit differently.
- Experiment with other neckband sewing methods. My method works but it still lands the top squarely in Intermediate sewing. I think you can sew it simpler with two other possible ways (one would be a little ready-to-wear like but nobody would be able to tell!)
- Try the dress length!
