Once an old favourite, this tan (er...ok, that's stretching it somewhat. Beige-ISH) & white polkadot dress has been hovering unworn in my wardrobe this year - partially because the fit was a bit off, and partially because Topshop or someone coincidentally came out with a frock in an identical print not long after I'd made this one - but a bit of a nip/tuck and I've already worn it three times in two days! I nipped the bodice, scooped the armholes in to give it more of a 'racer' shape (slave to fash-un, I love how Josh Goot does it but his current work still feels too mature for my lifestyle) and of course lopped a few inches off the bottom (it is QUITE SHORT but dammit, for once in my life I actually like my legs so I'm making the most of it).

Love the 3 ways you've worn the dress! Can't decide which of the two layering ones are my favourites - maybe the yellow skirt over the top that is genius! :)
