Description

Cute polka dots. A little bit 40s/50s, and a little bit modern! I used the Coffee Date Dress pattern, my cap sleeve tutorial, and 2.5 yards of polka dotted quilting cotton. Like most of my dresses it has pockets, in one of the pictures you can see a tiny bit of aqua pocket showing.
The first three pictures are of my friend Brittany modeling it, and the last one is of me.

Material Notes

cotton, relatively thick.

    Hello, i love this, I am about to start a ‘vintage’ dress but couldn’t find the right fabric…. polka dots looks great. A really nice dress.

      Thank you! Polka dots are always a good choice for vintage, as are a lot of florals, in my opinion! Good luck.
