I really like Maryy’s polka dress, so I made one for myself. I bought some adorable red fabric with little white polka dots and made up my own pattern. I’ve been afraid to try buttonholes, but I finally read about it in my sewing book and went for it. Turns out buttonholes aren’t too bad so now I can go button crazy with my projects! This dress buttons down the back and has elastic and darts at the bust to give it some shape.
