Hum, when you see this pic you may think: "Dots are SO funny, yeah right. And it's not even a dress, it's a skirt".
But look again:
Hey it is a fun dress! I know it's very similar to the panel dress from the August issue of Burda but I actually used my own basic bodice -the sleeveless version- and altered it after seeing a girl wear a mesh and black velvet top with this panel detail when I was on holiday. So I used navy bedsheet for the centre/upper part at the front and the upper back part and the dots fabric is super soft and thin stretch satined cotton from a local shop. The navy jacket is stretch cotton bought on sale, I sligthly altered a Burda Easy sewing design and the facings are navy and cream yukata cotton. Even though I wear a lot of my basic kimono style tops and tunics I love indulging in a little retro/glamour outfit sometimes and I really enjoyed spending the day in this one!
