Farewell Summer: Black & White Polka Dot Set

This one is dedicated to all the sewist out there getting their last minute summer projects in. I too held on to the last couple of weeks of summer with one or two projects.  But I must admit, I truly do believe I saved the best for last. 

Lately I've really been wanting to make separate pieces that can be mixed and matched with other basic garments in my closet. I ordered 3 yards of this polka dot fabric last summer, hoping to make culottes out of it.

Summer Denim Dress x 2: New Look 6509 & 6576

On July 14, 2018, I pledged not to purchase any more fabric until September 22, 2018.  I am still trying to decide if that was a dumb decision.  On the one hand, I have no choice but to use the fabric in my stash but this has also forced me to plan my sewing around my fabric stash instead of the patterns.  I really had to search my pattern stash to figure out which pattern would be best to make denim dress using remnants.
