I initially set out to use some left over fluro green jersey i purchased from a thrift store to make a top, but turns out it was long enough to be a dress and I love it!
I added some pleats on the back to make it look more professional when wearing it out.
I’m a little bummed that the stitching on the back at the top isn’t as straight as i’d like, i even put fusible facing there to stop it from stretching and puckering.. anyway!
fluro green jersey, nautical rope trim, two blue metal nuts
Celebrate with lovely dresses, sparkly dolman tees, and an embellished peplum skirt.
