For all those wondering and waiting, this is what I did with the halter…
Tadaaaaah!!! I made it into a skirt!
I took the time to recreate something unwanted and unbecoming and made it into what I wanted. How cool, right?
It took time, and I’m still working on perfecting some areas in the waistband, buuut it is preeeetty much complete.
As you can see the bottom hasn’t changed. I merely did away with the halter-cut away with it 😂, added a silk-like fabric to match the silk on the tulle, and Whalah! 🧚🏾♀️ Easy as fairy dust. Yeah right.
This peice can easily be dressed up with a nice top and some heels, or you can dress it down with a playful T-shirt/tanktop and cute flats, ooorrrr you can really jazz it up with a sequins top or jacket and some funky stockings/ tights. Very versatile, I’ll say. Well worth the hold [for 9 years] and the time it took to remake.
Would I do it again? Great question. As a beginning sewer, no!
There were so many things that I did not know and had no previous knowledge of that I had to learn on the spot and do on the spot, and my teacher- my teacher! she did not let up on me at all.
Overall, it was worth it. My very first sewing project. Now I have another reason to be proud of this piece.
