Description

This fulfills my obsession with jersey fabric, quick easy projects, and convertible clothing.
After drooling over Oona’s version and eagerly waiting for a tutorial for it, I caved and tried for myself, with great success.
If Oona doesn’t tute her tutorial soon, I may add instructions here.
This can be worn a bunch of ways, strapless, hooded, cowl necked, even as a high waist skirt. Think of perfect this would be worn on a warm day as a skirt and camisole, but in the cooler night as a hooded dress? Perfect!
Check out the master herself:

    alright. that clinches it. i was saving the tutorial for debi fry’s sew grateful thanksgiving week, but i’m posting it tomorrow. then you can roll in laughter at how OCD i went on it and show us all how to do it right! ruggy turned to me at hour 3 earlier this evening and asked in horrified tones if i was STILL working on the post.

    Great Job, that is really a versatile top, including being used for a hoodie. Oona would be proud of you too.

      This is probably my favorite thing in my closet right now, as for Oona’s approval, I’m unsure – it’s a solid neutral color!
