Description

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.

Material Notes

Blue spot on white back ground printed ponti knit – 72% Rayon 23% Nylon 5% Spandex.

    This is a beautiful dress. Though I’m not a big fan of bows, but I really like it on this dress! I think I’m going to add this on my to do list :)

    Wow, I love it! The waist details are lovely, and the bows just take the cake. I love how you styled it too – you look so gorgeously fresh and striking!

      Thankyou, I wasn’t sure about the bows in the beginning, but I think that they add a point of difference.

    Really lovely! Ponti is great to sew and as you wrote, so forgiving. I love this fabric and your pattern. I was disappointed you didn’t get a look in, in the Tessuti Awards. In fact, I was disappointed in the finalists. The judges see things differently to me obviously but I still think you deserved a final spot. Are you wearing this dress to a Melbourne Cup function?

      Thank you for your encouraging comments. II really loved the second place in tessuti awards, it was very modern . I’m not going to races but hopefully will get to wear it somewhere!

    It’s gorgeous! I wouldn’t have guessed it was made from ponti by looking at the photos.
