I think I have a thing for polka dots. Last year my daughter's wardrobe consisted of a lot of polka dots. I wasn't aware of it until my sister pointed out. Who would have thought I was a polka dot freak. So yes I had to throw it into the mix! This lovely skirt was a hand me down from my other sister. I loved the skirt soo much and was excited to have it. I can honestly say I may have worn it once. All that fuss for wearing it one day lol. Life changes, you change with life or however you want to look at but let's just say my hoochie days are over! So now this skirt will be refashioned into a summer top for my daughter. The design would be simple because I really wanted to keep the gathers and the beautiful scallops on the hem. I drafted a sleeveless bodice I still wanted room for the under arms. The outcome was exactly what I had envisioned.
Here is the infamous skirt.

Now on to more cuteness, here is my daughter modeling her polka dot top with some leggings I made her a while back. Remember to stop by tomorrow for day 7 of the upcycled challenge!
No you're not seeing double lol. It's just her and her little friend sporting the same dress.
Someone isn't too happy about picture day lol.
She amazed by the scallops we have something in common. :o)
