Classics II - Polka dots
This is the second post dedicated to "classic" fabric.
Today: Polka dots!
And I made this:
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!
