Welcome to a new pattern making class. In today’s class, I’m going to teach you how to make a halter neckline with a bow at the back of the neck.
As a general rule, a halter neckline is characterized by leaving a large part of the shoulders and the upper part of the back uncovered.
Although we can find different designs of this neckline, this is one of the most common on the market, after a classic halter neckline with ruching.
The opening system of this neckline will be the lacing that we will make on the neck and a zip in the centre of the back.
In today’s class you will also learn that we have to add different seam allowances depending on the finish we are going to make.
We won’t add the same seam allowance to a single side seam, as if we bag out the tie as we would have to flip the pattern over to make it clean on both sides.
The halter neckline is another perfect exercise to practice corrective darts, so I recommend that you watch the corrective darts class before this one.
Remember that all the measurements that I give you are indicative and you can change them to your personal taste or to the taste of your client.
At the end of today’s class, you will also find the steps to make this beautiful neckline.
As always, if you have any questions about today’s class, you can send me an email through your user account in the support section.
