Crochet Halter Top

 
 
 
 
 
Last year Eva wanted me to make her a halter like this, but I wasn't much into it. But this year, seeing that it's going to be quite a hit I decided to give it a try. Since I didn't have a pattern, but had tons of pictures she sent as inspiration, I whipped this. It was an interesting challenge I accepted and believe it or not it took me about 2 hours to make it. No frogging and unraveling since I counted 3 times and crocheted 1 :)
 
We are both pleased how it turned out. 
 
Now, in retrospect, as I am going to make another one, I want to add a more elaborate edge below the bust and perhaps make the straps at the  mid back a bit narrower.
 
Our next plan includes making a crochet bikini for the summer, without a pattern too, so I hope it turns out as good as this one.

cute top, it will be interesting to see a bikini set made without a pattern as lingerie can be quite tricky

Oh, but I have made two for myself in the past, so I know it would be fine.

Thank you so much Anabelia!I think it's the practice that gives one confidence to try his/her hand at things not tried before :)

Wow Maya, the crocheted top your daughter is gorgeous! You did a great job! The halter tops in the stores are so expensive and you made the top so fast and saved money too!
