Today I’m excited to be part of Polka Dot Week at R&R Workshop. Each day this week a couple of bloggers will be posting their polka dot-inspired projects because polka dots are so cute they really should be celebrated.
My first thought was to make something from some cute polka dot fabric I have, but nothing was really jumping out. But I wanted to watercolor, so I started thinking about a few fun things to paint. I have also been thinking a lot about how much I love the silhouette of vintage dresses and pretty soon I was watercoloring a cute little mustard yellow version.
I love how its on a dress form like it’s just waiting for someone to try it on. Add this vignette to a cute polka dot mat, and it’s as cute as can be. The only problem is that now I want that dress for real.
But until I find the perfect pattern and fabric, we can all enjoy this printable together.
I also decided that it would be fun to offer the dress without the polka dots. I wanted to make a whole series of watercolor dresses that could be enjoyed together or separately, and this is the starting point. So you can choose the polka dot version above or a simplified version below.
