Cabo Halter Day 1: Cutting Fabric

Have you joined Living With Punks' Amy Butler Cabo Halter Sew-a-Long yet? I'm so glad I did, because this sure is fun! Check out the Flickr group for lots of fun photos. The first day was devoted to tracing and cutting the pattern pieces. The Sew-a-Long's host has a great post on how to tackle that part of this pattern HERE.

Here's a pic of some examples of my pieces. I'm making two halters, one with Tanya Whelan Picnic damask (white and yellow) and the other more colorful one is Temple Garland by Amy Butler.

It took me an hour or so to trace and cut fabric for two halters. So excited to eventually wear these garments!!! The temps here have dipped down lately, but I still have summertime in sight! :)
