A Polka Dot Dress

 Two days ago I remembered this polka dot fabric my mom had gave me at Christmas and a pattern from simplicity I had wanted try and thought the two would pair very nice. I love the way the dress turned out! I made the dress the next size up for Sweet pea because her closet is already stuffed full.
 The pockets in the front are fully lined and are finished off with a sweet yellow rose.
 There are two red buttons on the back, the button holes turned out great! The last two times I made button holes I had to ripe out the stitches three times but this time no problems at all. :)
 The sleeves are gathered at the bottom with elestic. I love the puffy sleeves!
The front top has three scalopes in the front on the bodice, a fully lined bodice. I made the bias tape for the inside collar, hand stitched to the dress on the inside (you can see the stitching if you look close, please do I am happy with the way it came out!).

I really loved the way this dress turned out! I am going to make a Valitines dress with the same pattern after I finish the projects for Sweet peas birthday.

Happy Sewing!


  1. How sweet! Peter pan collar dresses are my favourite. Well done

  2. Love the polka dots! The dress turned out so well! What pattern did you use?
