oooh, what a cute top!




I recently began reading Miss Polka dot's blog and if you do, you'll know that she is often wearing really cute tops and dresses. Turns out, she makes them herself! Here I am, all excited about making pot holders, and she's making her own clothes :)

She also recently opened a shop where she will custom make dresses and tops for you! Hems and Hers is linked from her blog, as well as right here for you. She was so great to work with; she sent me a page full of links to fabrics that I could choose from, and I went with an Amy Butler print called Fresh Poppies in Fuchsia, from her Midwest Modern line.

I was so excited to see this post, indicating that my top was finished! I came home one day last week and found it waiting at my door! Hurrah! Have a look at the finished product :)

(please ignore my poor self-photographing skills!)




How much do you love the bow on the shoulder? I'm pretty sure I'll be buying a dress or two next spring :)
