In Polka Dot Heaven.

Not sure if you know.. But I seriously LOVE polka dots. Maybe in an unhealthy manner?? I've been holding on to some pink and brown polka dot remnants for months now... just waiting for the perfect project to come along. A super duper friend brought me a pattern piece and instructions for a smock top this afternoon. I sewed it up real quick and added velcro closure this evening. It wasn't polka dotty enough, so I grabbed a pair of her jeans and added a ruffled band around the bottom of the pants. This was the first time I have ruffled without a ruffler foot... well who am I kidding? This was only the second time I've ruffled anything. The first time I tried it out for fun with a ruffler foot on my machine. It wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be - plus I learned about some new features of my machine in the process! And the results couldn't be cuter!!!!
