I reorganized my stash the other day, and realized that I had a decent chunk of this navy polka dot knit fabric leftover from making a dress in the fall. I wanted to make something, but not go fabric shopping (shocking, I know), so next I searched through my patterns. Ultimately, I decided to make a polka-dotted peplum top with McCall’s 6896.

Both this fabric and this pattern were impulse purchases (surprise!) made on separate occasions. It took me a long time to be brave enough to pair them together, though.
