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.

|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!
