Me-Made-May: Refashioned Polka-Dots Top

When I pledged to wear at least one different handmade or refashioned item, this is the refashioned shirt I thought about.

I got this garment at a second hand store, not the fancy, mid-city kind, but the charity kind. It was a dress, originally, and I intended to use it for the same project I eventually sewed the buttons-print blouse. When that project was behind me, I was left with a big dress that didn’t quite sit right on me, but had a great polka-dots pattern, so I decided to convert it to a shirt, and in order to make it feel more “me”, I added this cute embroidery on some of its dots.
