Polka Dot Surprise

Well the surprise is here and it's filled with black polka dots on burnt orange.  I know interesting color choice... but I love it!!! Fabulously orange, and polka dots??? Come on.... Wonderful!!! I thrifted a whole bunch of this material for $2, grabbed a couple simple black round button's from "the Wal" and  started sewing.  I first cut out the shape, then ran stretch thread across the chest area(6 or 7 lines about an inch and a half apart), made the selves, made the edges, collar, and all the button holes. I love love love this dress. Did you get that:) Why? Not only is it so comfortable but it doubles as a tunic too.  Let's face it some days are dress days and some days are tunic with leggings days.  I provided pictures of both styles on this post for you. If you have any question's or comments please don't hesitate to type me a line.  Thanks for the support:)

 Front as a tunic
  Side as a tunic. You can see that I added a little button up piece on each side.

Enjoy your Tuesday:)
