Sew Fun: Harlow Halter

As promised, here are a couple of pics of the 30s halter I sewed using part of the aforementioned Wearing History pattern for a late 30s halter and trouser beach/leisure outfit.  In the photos below, the trousers were made by the WONDERFUL nudeedudee, but some time soon I hope to be adept enough at sewing to make my own slacks using the rest of the halter suit pattern!  Anywhoo, I fashioned the halter (which I've dubbed the Harlow) out of a white and pink rose-print vintage feedsack material. It was really only a trial piece. I plan on making a couple of other halters in brighter colors and patterns that will work for days at the beach, camping, etc.

Thank you for your lovely message, I've put you up on my favourite blogs that I follow :-)

You definitely look like you are ready for summer! I'm still working up the courage to show past the elbows as my skin hasn't seen sunlight in what, 8 months?! Oh dear... Damn London weather! xx

Oh my goodness, kind thanks! it was such a simple little top to make. I feel a bit "exposed" in the back, but I suppose it that was the look!

Louise, I am utterly honored to be mentioned in the same sentence as the Deco Goddess, Jean Harlow!

Isabel, I am pale as a sheet, too, but maybe with a bit of sun in a bottle, I'll be able to go around feeling a little more bronzed this summer!
