Description

Summer 2008 – A green striped jersey knit dress that is the most comfortable thing I own. Used a racerback t-shirt I has for a pattern for the top half of the dress and added a piece of elastic and gathered skirt for the bottom. I hemmed it with a neon green zig-zag stitch to add a little flair.
It’s my favorite to wear as a beach cover-up or lounging around the house.

Material Notes

Two-toned striped jersey knit from the $1.00/yard table at my local Walmart.

    This is a great dress that it seems like you got a deal on the fabric. Looks like something I would buy at H&M. for 25 dollars.
