The Polka Dot Revolution Continues - New Look 6119 and New Look 6181 - Frankenpattern

As I am sure you guys have figured out, I am a Polka-Dot-A-holic, and I don't think I can personally have too much of the stuff. 

Summer is approaching fast and so is my many vacations. I am beefing up my work wardrobe but also adding a few pieces to my summer wardrobe.  Next week is my 10th wedding anniversary and later on this year we are celebrating these 10 years married and 12 years together on a beach in Punta Cana  if the Lord sees fit.   So I want pretty outfits in every photo op.    

Here is my inspiration and final product:




I used New Look 6119 for the bodice and New Look 6181 for the bottom and the fabric is a Jersey knit.   I really like both of these patterns as they are easy to make and so many different variations.


Happy Sewing!
