This is it. This is the last bit of my Polka Dots Fabric. I made three pieces of garments with 3 metres of fabric. I love Polka dots! The top is made with a knitted cotton which I cut off from a T-shirt. It was unfortunately a tad too short. The shorts is made of the remaining woven cotton. I used 2.5cm elastic for the top and 0.75cm elastic for the waistband. the top is basically two rectangles and I traced the bottom pattern from my own shorts. The bottom is flared so from some angles it looks like a skirt.
