: : :Polka Dots: : :
I made this dress to accompany a friend to a wedding. I love polka dots, so I thought this dress would be perfect...and black and white is always a classy combination. So I decided on a jersey knit polka dot fabric, and then chose Simplicity 1612 because it looked fairly simple (am still new to knits!).
Simplicity 1612. I made view A, which is a knee length knit dress with a twisty tie front and cut-out back.My fabric was a stretchy jersey knit. I made a size 8.
This was a super easy dress to make. I had no issues with fit or construction. The only alterations I made were taking in the back seam and elastic about an inch and adding the black ribbon just under the bust. Oh, I also left off the sleeves because I wanted to pair this dress with the little black jacket (also made by me).
It can easily be dressed down by leaving off the jacket and wearing a black T-shirt underneath for a sort of jumper dress effect--which makes the dress more casual. So there it is! There's not much else to say, except that it's altogether a fun dress! :)
The wedding was lovely, and yup...everybody liked my dress. ;)
