Halter Sun Dress

Halter Sun Dress
Pattern: New Look 6222

I picked this cute pattern up from Spotlight 
when they had a sale on last month.

I thought it would make a comfy and cool summer dress for my girls.

For my 6 year old I used the A version of the dress and included the pockets.


I  think the simple bow at the front adds the perfect touch.

It is a good fit but I did have to tighten the back elastic by about 1.5 inches.
I also sewed through the neck ties at the front bodice to secure them 
and prevent them from pulling through. 

This is one of my favourite fabrics. 
It is the second time I have purchased it. I also have it in blue.

I made the version C dress for my 3 year old and added the peplum to it.
It was a little big around the back too.
I think it might be worth just unpicking the overlocking stitch to fix it. 

This was such a quick pattern to sew and 
I think it will be worn often this summer.
