DIY: Vintage silk halter top

Naoko from Ultramarine Vintage had asked me to remake this oversized silk top into a cute wearable halter top. I don't have much experience in remaking stuff, so I was a bit nervous.
Here is what the top looked like before the makeover...
It is 100 percent silk, size L, and has a cute pocket on the left side. The fabric is very nice, but you don't want to wear this in 2009... it requires a bit more work.
I cut out the sleeves, and halt of the back. In the back, I made a loop for the elastic.
For front, I wanted to leave the pocket. So I cut the neckline little deeper, and made another loop for elastic in the front as well.
With the fabric I cut out, I made a strap to go around the neck.

Here is the result! It will be available at Ultramarine Vintage!
