"Is that a post-it?" Portfolio Top

Wore my new polka dot portfolio top when I visited my mom yesterday. Guess what she asked me? “IS THAT A POST IT ON YOUR TOP?”
Hello? No its not ;-) I had to make a check @home and the format of the square is really pretty much the same… hehe.

After seeing Burda style member sprashar’s version I was inspired and had to buy the pattern.

      Thank you francini. I think there is a big global polka dot lovers family ;-) It doesn’t bother me, so I’ll leave it as it is. Wanted to finish it before end of summer but well, now I have to wear a thin turtleneck underneath the top.
