More pillowcases to tops. I did some rough sews of these two as I liked the look of the halter. The cream halter has a low back and the blue halter/weskit has none! I did make up a halter for a friend since and brought the back up more, so to allow for bra. Cute pattern, ends at waist so it needed to be adapted for contemporary wear – I just lengthened the sides and darts. The blue halter is similar to a temporary beach top you can fashion from scarves but has nicer shaping, again, would work very well adapting into a dress in a 1940s style……………..

I love the dynamic quality the open check gives the cream halter!
