I actually thought the halter was pretty nifty, but I love the top! Well done you.

That's your 20 something dd modeling that halter dress right? I'd take your "dumpy" looking body any day. That being said, I like the remake too!

Hey, I love the halter dress. You could wear it! Esp. in the South here in AL. Only fashion matters. Beautiful dress and top.

Love the top, and it looks very nice on you. Although I agree with the other comments that you could have worn that halter top, that is only true if you were comfortable in it, and obviously you weren't since you didn't wear it. So it is wonderful that you were able to use your pretty fabric. I hear that turquoise is an in-color again this year. Thanks also for the tips on the pattern (short, narrow hip).

Congratulations on remaking your fabric into a beautiful flattering garment you feel more appropriate and will use. BTW at 57 myself I thought your previous halter dress was totally suitable on you because of the great shape you are in.

I'm glad you could rescue the fabric! That really is a fantastic color on you and the shirt is so flattering.

55? Oh my gosh, you look so wonderful. And, yes, you COULD have pulled off the halter dress, but how wonderful to make yourself a garment you love much more. You are on a roll with the cute garments!

Very pretty top. Congrats on being able to re-purpose that fabric. I, too, sometimes forget how old I am....lol.

If anyone could have pulled off that halter dress at 55 (are you sure that's not a typo?), it is you. I love the new top on you. I still haven't bought this pattern. Must get it. You've definitely gotten your $$ out of this great pattern.

The top turned out really nice. Well done. You looked great in the halter too!
