DIY Pleated Top + V8977 Pattern Review

This is a very popular pattern among DIY Bloggers and one that’s been in my stash for a long time too – Vogue Pattern V8977.

There’s something about shades of green this year that has my senses going absolutely crazy!

This top started out as a dress, but quickly ended back up as a top only…
