*Holly Sew*

Found this cute, Vintage, red, Polka Dot dress at a Garage sale last summer. It STUNK so I only had to pay 50 cents for it...score. I took it home, scrubbed and scrubbed it and it still stunk so after a good sniffing I realize it was the elastic...

apparently as elastic ages it starts to smell like cat pee...Lovely.

The halter tie was originally a bow but I decided it would be way cuter with I had the button detail...absolutely love the dress...

I loved the dress so much that I had to make another one...when I replaced the elastic on the Polka-Dot dress I traced a pattern from it to make this....
Very summery and fun....
My Aunt gave me the material, she found it at Goodwill!

Though, I do have to say that my favorite part our my shoes...Payless Shoe Source the perfect shade of yellow and only $4.00!

  1. Well, it's a good thing that I don't have a vision of the potential for some of my goodwill finds, because I'd be hoarding them and not passing them along, for sure! Way cute dress - never saw that in the fabric when I picked it up.

  2. Very Cute!! They are both adoreable! I don't know how you do it? You put me to shame with all that you can get are a busy lady and love all the stuff you create!

  3. Love these cute dresses, Holly! :)
