Stop Staring have a gorgeous red polka dot wrap dress which I decided I must try and replicate http://www.stopstaringclothing.com/sunshop/glmwp-03-rdwhd-166.html
I didn’t want to buy any more fabric as my stash is so huge at the moment so I used a blue dot instead. I had a blue spot called Shadowed Sapphire which I purchased from Tessuti (on sale!)
The fabric is Ponti and I have to say , I LOVE IT! Not only is it easy to work with it’s really forgiving on the body. I used a vogue pattern Vogue V1192 and down sized it to allow for the stretch. I deleted the back zip and added the bows to the shoulders which are removable.
Blue spot on white back ground printed ponti knit – 72% Rayon 23% Nylon 5% Spandex.
