I found a bunch of awesome green knit fabric at a thrift store a couple of weeks ago. It's soft and light, perfect for a new spring/summer dress.
The dress has a circle skirt, and a tank top.
It also has a lovely braided waistband...
...and neckline. But that's not all...
Surprise! They're actually separates! I love pairing the top with some jeans. I have yet to wear the skirt with a different top, but that will definitely change as the weather warms up.
Oh, and one of my favourite parts! I used vintage buttons my grandmother gave me to close up the skirt in the back. I love that they don't match. As for button loops, I used embroidery floss and made chinese stair cases. There is also a hook and eye fastener inside the skirt for extra strength.
If you would like the pattern, it will be up in my Etsy shop in the next week or so!
