As seen in the pages of Happy Home...Lucy, the Classic Halter Dress! We've engineered this one to have multiple coverage options and fit all body types. We also love the way that Lifestyle fabrics are so suitable for this dress. Long or short it is stunning and every woman and looks amazing! A simple tie at the neck, elastic back and you are good to go. Take it everywhere, especially on the next vacation. It is a true show stopper that you can make in a flash!

Coverage - Two separate bodice patterns are included. The Classic Halter style has bikini-style cups that meet in the center. While cool and breezy, the classic version is still perfectly appropriate for all occasions. The Full Coverage style crosses over at the front, and also comes up higher under the arms to wrap more fully around the sides and back.

Skirt Length - The A-line skirt can be made in a range of lengths from mini to maxi. The longer the skirt, the more flare at the bottom. The short lengths make for great tops!

Fabric - The dress can be made from a single fabric, or multiple fabrics can be mixed and matched. We love using a contrasting fabric for the lining and/or waistband.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:
XS (0-2) to 3XL (24W-26W)

Since moving to the Carolina coast, this has become my go to dress for hot sticky days of runing errands, or lazy days at the beach. I have a large bust and love to wear this dress with a tube top, bathingsuit, or tank underneathe. Pair with a cardigan or light jacket and it's great for church or dinner out too! I've made three so far and love love love!!

If all patterns could be this concise and easy to follow! Not only easy, but many options to make a perfect fit. I can't tell you how many compliments I've had. These authors make this intermediate sewer look like a professional seamstress!
