I know I know, polka-dots are getting kind of 'overdone', but I still like them! 

Halter-style top (Simplicity 4998):

Skirt out of the same fabric (New Look 6953):
[don't worry, I wouldn't wear them together... I think that would be overkill]

Red Polka Dot top (Butterick 5886, actually a dress pattern, but I just shortened it to be a top):

Thanks for looking!

polka dots are probably my most favorite things ever.

but yours is still cuter.

I sure am in your French class.  I just 'stalked' your previous posts and recognized one of the bags you had sewn as one you'd had in class!  This is the first time I've ever 'run into' someone from real life on Craftster... not that Craftster isn't real life!

Thank you to everyone for the nice compliments.  I'm glad to see that others still have appreciation for the epic polka dot!  It's funny, everyone likes the halter top... but I have yet to wear it out... and I made it quite a while ago.  I just always felt like it didn't fit quite right.  But my own pictures have convinced me that it looks alright.  Once the summer-y weather comes, I'm going to wear it.

I love the halter! It look great on you. Eyeballing it, I can make out the general idea, and I think I might just have to try and make one myself! (It will be less polka-dotty though, because I don't have any polka-dot fabric)
