The "never say never again" maxi-dress

Few months ago I noticed that neon colors are trendy one more time. Being a teenager in the mid 80’s, I thought I had my share of this, and was pretty sure I won’t fall for this tendence again. Wrong!!! I found this jersey knit with bold neon stripes and couldn’t help myself, so i introduce you my “never say never again” kind of maxidress (not so maxi because I’m a shorty person) I used about 2 and a half yards of fabric, and still have enough fabric to cut a little skirt for my girl, pictures coming soon!!!. Self drafted pattern, irregular hem, kind of fish tail aka high-low cut. Hope you like it!!!
P.D: please forgive my dusty floor. We are changing our patio terrace tiles ; P

Material Notes

2 1/2 yard knit jersey, elastic
