DIY Halter Dress – Simplicity 8382 – Learn to Sew Patterns

DIY Halter Dress - Simplicity 8382 - Learn to Sew

Happy Wednesday!

As you read this post, I’m deep in my chill.  Hahaha! This week’s post will be rather short, as I’m in vacation mode right now.  This halter dress was made using a “Learn to Sew” pattern by the Simplicity Pattern Company.  This is a great pattern for those who are just learning to sew, or want to practice your techniques.  There are only three pattern pieces, which makes it even better.  You will learn how to insert cording into a casing, apply fringe trim (optional), and apply a bias tape facing.

You can use both woven and knit fabrics for this dress.  I chose an ITY (Interlock Twist Yarn) Knit that I picked up from the Michael Levine Loft in Downtown, Los Angeles.  Other great choices would be challis, crepe de chine, and lightweight single knits.

Remember:  When you live in your DESIGN, it is from there the God SHINES!

    I love this dress!! I kept clicking around looking for the video of you making it hahaha. I have to quit being chicken & purchase a machine . . . I’m just worried I won’t thread the sewing machine properly, or that I won’t be able to identify a needed repair. I’m still not sure which type to buy ugh.
    Enjoy your vacation & congratulations to your hubby.

    In Christ.

    Fabric is fabulous, and I love the links you included. That looks like something I’d live in all summer!

    Also…I finished my circle skirt and wore it to Church this past Sunday. So many compliments, no one could believe I made it myself as my first ever garment! I gave the glory to God for granting me patience and a great teacher! Thank you Anita 💜
