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.
Red cotton with white polka dots, buttons.
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.
