Polka Dot Polly Love
Over the Xmas period Polka Dot Polly was having an incredible advent calendar sale.
I had never ordered from them before so I decided to pick up a custom made piece of each, a dress, a top and a skirt.
The dress that I ordered was a deep red with small polka dots, when it came in the post I was soooo excited, I haven’t been able to find anything in a style like this in my size and it is so beautifully made. The shape of the bodice is not the one that I had wanted but unfortunately after reviewing my measurements I was told that this one was the only on that was going to work.
I think the style of bodice on this dress actually works to my advantage in that it makes my boobs look incredible!!!!!! lol
The seam across the back sits quite a bit higher than I would like but to save on having it altered I will be wearing it with a bolero or some such appropriate garment. I got this dress custom made for me with my choice of fabric and choice of skirt style for only £40.
I absolutely love the full circle skirt. I love how flowy it is and it makes me feel like a princess every time I move.
I went for the circle skirt again when I ordered the second outfit. This deal was a top and skirt set for only £25, again in their special Xmas calendar sale.
I looks miserable…but I’m not…see next pic lol
For the top I chose a fabric with a bit of stretch as my boobs are kinda huge and I didn’t want it too tight, if I’m honest I wasn’t really interested in the top when I was ordering, I just wanted a really nicely made cotton circle skirt in my size (which I still cant find anywhere else) so the top was just a bonus. saying that I am really happy with the top as it does look lovely with the skirt.
The skirt is really nice quality heavy cotton (I’m guessing from the sheer quantity of fabric that was used) I would definitely have paid the £25 for the skirt alone, which is probably why I see the top as a bonus.
The skirt reminds me of being a little girl wanting what I used to call a ‘spin around skirt’
I love how much fabric they used to get the full circle skirt effect which I thought would be lacking in skirt in my size.
I will definitely keeping an eye out to see when they have a sale again as I would love another skirt… maybe in an adventurous print next time.
You really must check out their fabric selection… its amazing! They have so may different food prints and character prints…you could really have a lot of fun designing something beautiful and more importantly made to last.
*I ordered and paid for these items myself, these were not sent to me for review.*
