Classics II - Polka dots

This is the second post dedicated to "classic" fabric.

Today: Polka dots!

And I made this:

A simple summery top for a little girl.

This little top reminds me of the dresses my grandmother used to make for my sister and I. I don't remember if she ever made something like this, but it has an air of "a long time ago".

I made the pattern myself based on a shop bought dress. I shortened the length to make a top instead and lowered the neck line. I added a pocket and an opening at the back.

Instead of using coordinating thread on the bias tape I used a contrasting orange - which of course follows the polka dot theme.

Bias tape is a favourite of mine!
I might even do a post dedicated to bias tape soon!


  1. That's a really cute little top! Nice with the orange and blue together!

  2. I wish I was 3 years old so I could wear this! And I really hope my daughter will soon!
