It is a trompe-l’oeil jumper I made. Something between “it looks like a dress” but it is a “jumper”. I used the balloon technique of the skirt to make the short part appear as a skirt.
PS: I started with a princess dart top. Then I saw what a wonderful dress it could be but I dnt like short dress. I then decided I could try to make the short part in puff. And then boom!! Here I gooooo!!! :-)
