Black & White Polka-Dot Dress

OK, let me warn you! I'm in love with polka-dots!!! I always have since I was little and liked Minnie Mouse. But, sadly I never had a dress with polka-dots till this year when I have three! :-) But this one is the best, as it reminds you of Minnie Mouse, but in black instead of red.

Pattern Description: Misses Dress with neckline and skirt variations.
Pattern Sizing: I cut a size 10
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes!
Were the instructions easy to follow? Super Easy!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love this pattern, super cute and stylish! It will be perfect for my trip to London!
Fabric Used: Cotton quilter fabric from Joann's.
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I lengthened the dress 7 inches. If let as is the dress would be above my knee (I'm 5' 8").
Would you sew it again? Yes.
Would you recommend it to others? Sure, it’s so cute.
Conclusion: Cute dress and so fun to wear!

What I'm wearing with the dress:
Reversible Black and Brown Belt from JCPenny - $9 on clearence

    This dress looks wonderful on you. :) Way to go!

    love, Apphia
