Blue Polka Dot Dress

This handmade 1980's little number had several things going for it... the navy blue color, the tiny white polka dots, the sheer, cotton fabric, I could go on. However, the length was all wrong and it was a frumpy mess! 


I removed the sleeves, took up the length by about 8 inches, and used the scrap to make a nice sash. Now I have this!


I love the inverted pleat in the front as well. It's light and airy and perfect for Summer!
