This dress isn't halter style, but I made it halter style. The write up is on my blog.The best part about this dress was including an internal bra piece. I used the XYT top's bra lining that Melissa from Fehr Trade put out in December. It's a versatile pattern that I've applied to this dress and I can see it being applied to other summer garments. Here's my review of Melissa's patterns.
