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