Polyester Nightmare Dress

When I found this dress at an estate sale, I immediately loved the psychedelic print and the colors on the skirt! It was also made of a nice, knit material. The top however, ugh. It was a thick, itchy ribbed polyester. And the high neck and long sleeves made it totally unwearable! So, I turned it into this lovely caftan style dress, perfect for finishing out the Summer!

This is a scandal! Who did this to this fabulous dress? What an awful jacket is this? I'm so glad you refashioned this great colorful material to something that nice summer-dress. Really beautiful!
