Whimsically Chic in Polka Dot

I am crazy about dots no matter the colour or the size of the dots. I bought this lovely shade of green in the drapery section and I use it to make a pleated neckline with front and back princess seams and double sleeves, where the top one is pleated. The dress is semi lined only the top.

The skirt part is pleated with pockets for functionality. I wear the dress with a blue sash that has a bow to give it a little contrast. Zipper is enclosed at the back.

I love the look…very unusual and quite playful. The design was inspired by designer Anne Klein V1156.

What do u think??

    Very beautiful, romantic dress, kisses! The pleated neckline looks pretty original and the ruffled sleeves match it well – both of the details together create some vintage note. The blue belt looks unexpected but I’m sure it catches the eye and makes the outfit very individual.

    What colour do you not suit??? This dress looks great and the polka dots are lovely. I too really like this Vogue pattern as I really like the neck line darts.
