Howdy! I finished my version of this pattern this weekend too — in black w/ white polka dots, and white w/ black polka dots. Plus red satin bias binding.

I couldn’t manage to get the snap buttons to go on properly – I had the type you have to hammer together but they just wouldn’t! So I put some red buttons instead and I htink they look better.

There’s some more photos on my blog

  1. Awesome! I love the polka-dots, and love the red bias binding… and I love, too, how you really brought out the wee bits of red in the dress by wearing red accessories! Smashing!

  2. I didn’t think I’d want to make this again anytime soon but seeing yours in it’s fabulousness makes me want to! Wonderful work! The colours are classic and that *pop* of red is perfect! Way to go!

  3. Aw, thanks guys! I’m glad I went with the contrast bias binding in the end, as well as the contrasting fabric.
