When my girls were young, they wore dresses made from dotted swiss, usually Easter dresses. I picked up a skirt the other day at a thrift store with a pretty blue floral pattern printed on top of embroidered dots. It was kind of an updated version of the flocked dotted swiss that my girls used to wear. I shopped around until I found a white dotted swiss blouse that could be merged with the skirt to make a pretty retro-inspired springtime dress.
The bodice has small embroidered dots with crocheted lace detailing.
The skirt has larger embroidered dots with a pretty blue floral pattern printed over it.
