I guess this isn’t polka dot ornament. But it is dotty though… I was restricted by the amount of fabric I had – approximately 0.70m, so I had to fit the pattern to the fabric. Since I couldn’t find an appropriate skirt model in my BWOF stash, I decided to make one myself. The skirt has lining made out of red crepe viscose. I didn’t hem the skirt, but serged it – I don’t have a serger, so I used thin zig zack stitch and run it 3 times on both the skirt and the lining. The skirt has invisible zipper on the left side.
Dotty red crepe viscose for the skirt; Red crepe viscose for the lining; Invisible zipper.
