I made one of my girls a halter top using the Kimberly Maxi Dress PDF pattern from Modkid. She has been asking for a halter top for a while. I want to make dresses for my girls too, but I don't have enough fabric at the moment. I had some great Lila Tueller fabric in my stash that she was drawn too, and the green for the bodice was some fabric that I picked up locally at the craft store which matched well. I had bought this fabric for myself, and when I don't get to "my" fabrics, my girls always snag it for themselves. Of course, it's okay. I like that we have the same taste in fabrics.
She has been so use to wearing knits that she is unsure of how she likes this as a top. I told her to give it a little time to see, plus, a halter top is such a different feel anyway. This fabric is more of a medium weight fabric, so a lighter one in the future might be more comfortable for this type of top/dress.
