Today I am wearing a white halter neck which I final finished making.
I pattern cut the top from a basic bodice block by drawing the style lines on and made a half circle skirt from a waist measurement. I bagged out the top and hand sewn it down inside as well as the hem. I bound the seams inside. I used a binding from john lewis it wasn't the best quality I think I would make my own next time or use the same as I did for the ribbon and loops.
I made my ribbon and and loops from a binding for a lace up back and zip down the back of the skirt.
