DIY Halter

Want a easy halter for summer without spending a fortune? 
Then this is the project for you. 

 Tutorial
Things You Need
1. T-shirt, mine was a men's small.
2. Cord  or ribbon ~One Yard
3. Extra material~ if you want to make the ruffle neck line.
4. Sewing machine
5. Scissors
6. Needle and thread the same color as the shirt you use.



Cut where I marked the orange lines. 


Fold over and sew 1 inch hem.
I also hemmed under the arms 1/2 inch.


Thread your cord through the hem that you made on the front and the back, then tie the two ends of the cord together
Take your material and cut 4 inch strips.
Fold the strips in half and hand stitch a running stitch at the folded side, then gather your material to make the ruffle.
Then you hand baste it to your shirt around the neck line.



Tous les Fini!


A new white halter for summer.
Use your imagination and change it up a bit by using ribbon where the cord is or different color material around the neck. The possibilities are endless.

As always email me if you have any questions.
Have a wonderful Tuesday!

  26. I think this is amazing and really want to try it. I'm trying to gauge what size to use though-- I noticed that you used a men's small. I'm only 5', have a petite frame and short torso. What size do you recommend that I use for this so that it's not too long?
