I was looking for a rockabilly feeling pattern for a summer dress to use this adorable polka dotted fabric. I fell in love with this pattern which I think actually came out in the 70’s, but has a sweet late 50’s look. It was a very easy pattern to work with, and it came together in just a couple days. I can’t wait for warmer weather, this dress will look great on the beach!
Blue and white polka dot cotton from fabric.com, and a tiny bit of contrasting bright red cotton sateen for a little color.
