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!
