Another day, another Staple Dress. This time, with polka dots!
I was so happy with my first Staple Dress, that I decided to make another. This one in a super lightweight cotton voile, black polka dots on pink that I’ve had in my stash for a long time. I think I got it from fabric.com, but I’m really not sure. I did the five rows of shirring at the waist again. I was only going to do two, but it just didn’t fit the way I wanted when I tried it on after I thought I was done. So I went back and added another three rows to get the best look for me. I love how easy this dress is with fit, so accommodating to whatever your person style and preference is.
The fabric on this one is super sheer, which is just great for summer. I’ve been layering a plain white tee underneath, and then wearing my white cropped skinny jeans I made last year. Cool and comfortable, but a bit more put-together than just jeans and a tee.
The Staple Dress is part of the Perfect Pattern Parcel #3, along with Poppy Tunic by Make it Perfect, Water Bottle Tote by Radiant Home Studio, Jorna Tank Dress by Jenna Brand, and the Bombshell Swimsuit by Closet Case Files, plus a bonus pattern of the Prefontaine Shorts by Made By Moxie.
