The competition at crafty mamas this month is creative children's clothing. That was enough to motivate me to trying out my draft of the gathered halter top. I thought the first try (gathers at the top only) was not quite right, so I changed to a gathers all the way through. Wayne actually prefered the first, but I still needed to make changes to the length and add seam allowances.
I am hoping that I have got it right for now. No doubt I will change it in the future but I may be able to cut into some more precious fabric, rather than the scraps.
