When I found this special piece of green gingham that looks faded by the time, I knew I had to do a draped dress with it. This bohemian dress is made from multiple pieces of fabric folded, twisted and wrapped around the body to create volume and movement. All the body of the dress is hand sewn. I hesitate a long time about what to choose to make the straps. I choose this vintage fine wool blend with a floral pattern that I tea dyed (it was ivory). I canno't resist to frayed a part of the hem of the fabric in front in tribute to kilt, and to do some folded pleats on the bottom side. This babydoll dress as also embroidered seams with grey blue silk yarn, as well as hand serged hems. The woodland dress has also a tea dyed crochet like lace fabric frill at the bottom. The top of the dress is adorned with two layers of crocheted lace that I tea dyed.
I was inspired by the flapper era dresses and gave it a modern twist. I slightly changed the back straps on this one to fit the pattern of the fabric. This fabric is kind of rustic style, a blend of thick cotton and linen.
I conceived this halter dress to be confortable in summer, it is slightly fitted and let the wind keep you fresh. Its a long short style, so when you walk it moves beautifully. But, even not fitted it has his part a sexy with is beautiful back cleavage. It would make unique alternative wedding dress.
***IMPORTANT: I can't redo this dress, this is the only piece of this fabric I own, this was the end of the roll forever. Once is gone, its gone.

I would recommend to compare those measures to your actual clothes for a better fitting. I made the straps longer (this is hidden inside) so it would be easy to alter for customization.

The halter part that start from the top edge of the top, pass over the neck and join the other top edge measures 19.5". I can't add length to the frontal straps on this one, but I could adjust the sides straps. I could pre-alter this dress for you, contact me to see what I can do proving your bust circumference, over the bust circumference and any other informations that you think could be usefull.
