The Topsy Turvy Polka Dot Dress

I really like a good red, white, and blue combination, so when I saw this shirred, strapless dress, I knew I had to pick it up!  Plus, it's polka dots...bonus!!  However, strapless was not going to work for me.  My first thought was to make it into a skirt.  It would be a simple transformation, but also a waste of some of those lovely polka dots.  After some thought, I came up with a different solution.

This version is much more wearable now!

I love it. You can never go wrong with red, white and blue or polka dots.

This is so cute. I like how you were able to use the fabric at the shoulders. It's fabulous!
