Polkadot Periwinkle Dress & Top for Minerva

A few months ago, Minerva sent me some gorgeous Lady McElroy Viscose Jersey in this fantastic bright pink with black polkadot print. I knew it would make a perfect big swishy dress for my eldest, but then after it arrived, she decided she hated it. Black polkadots, apparently, were not acceptable.

Funnily enough, I was sorting through my youngest daughter's bins of clothing just the other day, and discovered a Tea collection pair that was super similar!
