I did some online window shopping this week & came across this fun & sexy summer dress sold at Revolt. Show Me Your Mumu calls it the Katy Halter Dress.

And they want $136 for it!


I thought it looked simple enough to give a try at remaking…and it was! Keep reading to make your own halter dress with a low back.

My Version:

(for less than $10)


The dress is made with a soft, floral stretch satin fabric, baby blue as the primary color. It has a halter strap and stops mid-thigh with a low back. It’s the perfect little piece for weekend brunch.

1 yard of lightweight fabric (I used a stretchy satin, wasn’t very stretchy)

Back – Cut out a large square piece & a 1/2 oval out of the top.

After pieces are cut out, sew dress together at the side seams.

Apply trim to neckline raw edge.

What do you guys think? Worth a go, right?

Not completely confident enough to invest in fabric? This would be the perfect DIY project using a bed sheet upcycled from your closet or the thrift store!
