I had lost a little bit of weight since last year, and my favorite pair of army green pants got A) too loose on me and B) had inconvient holes in the thigh area  Roll Eyes

I got inspired to make a fitted sweet-heart bodice with the pants material since it was sturdy enough yet stretchy. It looked a bit too plain so I added a slip and a layered ruffle skirt on the bottom. Any leftover from the quilting scraps I used to make some funky straps, line the neckline, and handsew a yo-yo to cover up the part of the bodice neck I couldn't cover XD

It's all relatively stretchy, so I didn't add a zipper (though one would have probably been a good idea haha).
