Nope, you're not going to see me in a polka dot bikini, but you might just catch me in my newly refashioned beach shorts!  I polka dotted them with the tangerine fabric of my old maternity top, which I had used for my snowflake dress, and added a little sparkle and lace to the pockets.  Don't you just love this colour? I just can't seem to get enough out of it.

Get all your sewing materials together!

My polka dots were the size of googly eyes which I traced
and cut. I wish I had a puncher but I didn't want to
waste my money on one.

Spacing the dots about 2 inches apart. I marked the shorts
with chalk every 1 inch and then pasted the dots on
every alternate mark - the dots will form diamonds rather
than a boring square !

Add sparkle to the pockets and we're ready to go!




Woo hoo!

  1. Did you sew the orange circles on one by one?? The shorts look really cute!!!

    I made a pair of shorts too, but they're not as cute as yours :p

  2. Hi Nueyer, thanks for your sweet comment. I actually glued them on with fabric glue. I think I would be crazy if I had sewn them on!!! :-)

    Love your shorts - it has a retro feel to it.
