I think I have a problem. I have made multiple versions of The Staple Dress and have more versions I want to make. It might also be because we’re packing up to move in a couple of weeks, and it’s the only pattern easily accessible.

DIY Loose Polka Dotted Top

I added leather tabs and snaps to the shoulders and sleeve hems. I love the little details it adds to the simple look of the top. (You can tell I added shirring to the waistline and took it out because I didn’t like the look.)

DIY Loose Polka Dotted Top

Pattern: The Staple Dress. I cut it into a hi-lo shirt, raised the neckline in the front and back, and added leather tabs.
Fabric: Peachskin from fabric.com*. (It’s on sale right now too!) It is a polyester, but it has a really soft hand and fluid drape. It breathes well too.
Time: 2 hours
Cost: $2.79 per yard and I used two yards, so $5.58 plus a little bit of leather and some snaps.
