Upcycled lemony rayon jumper dress.

Thanks for stopping in! :)

This is a lemony yellow rayon jumper dress that used to be straight and long (had some holes too). See the photo on right for the "before". :) Has jumper straps and buttons up each side. A friend donated it, b/c she had had it for years and didn't know what to do with it. She decided to just give it up and see what I would come up with.

I really wanted to give it some more sassy-ness and swing, so added some rayon gores of fabric that used to be a sarong (and yes, I have a terrible time cutting into a "perfectly good" sarong - the first cut is the worst! - and was so worth it!:).

I also added some fun patches of color to tie it all together and to cover up some challenges it was having. :) It has a cute little pocket on the front bib.

This is a very light, swingy dress to wear - very cool for summer. The drape of the rayon is very nice (wind is blowing it around in outside photos). The print is a small yellow and white check with a small dark blue flower.

Tag still says size Large.

Measures 37" long from shoulder to bottom hem. Measures 44" around the waist seam.

And this dress can be cinched in at the waist with a dress clip to fit just about any size, in case you are not a large and are coveting it. :) (Photos show a dark blue dress clip). I make and sell custom dress clips if you are needing one of those. For this dress, I could even make one out of the dark blue batik fabric to match the gores/patches - just let me know. 

This dress looks fantastic over sleeved or sleeveless shirts. I put it over a light-weight, dark blue jersey shirt and a strappy tee. A light-weight white shirt would look great too! :)

This is a cool, light-weight, summer dress!

Dry clean only when needed or hand wash in cool water and hang to dry.
