Polka Dots for Work

Another work into evening outfit. The skirt is made of a simple cotton polka dot fabric with shirring about the basque to keep it close against the body. Then it flares out in gathers and inverted pleats to create a very full hemline.

The top/jacket is in a silky stretchy fabric which slides against the body without clinging. It closes with a zip up the front and at the neckline is a wide gathered frill which sits wide on the shoulders. I often wear a silky singlet beneath so the top can be removed for the evening. Both the skirt and the top were given to me by my sister when she grew tired of them. She is a great source of preloved clothes for me.

I either wear flat ballerina shoes or the ones in the photo depending on how I feel that morning. I always wear the wonderful metal cuff in the picture, which I bought on Trademe.co.nz. The sleeves of the top are three-quarter length and I take advantage of the bare skin to wear it.
