Hooray, it’s another Laurel!  One of a few I have planned for fall.  When I was in NYC last month I stopped by Mood, and just about every fabric I walked out with has some iteration of a polka dot print.  Maybe I was having a polka dot moment?  Well, in my opinion, you can never go wrong with polka dots.

This version is probably more suited for spring since the cotton is very lightweight and a little on the sheer side, but our fall has been really mild so far and I wore this all day at the park without a jacket.  It also gets a bit wrinkly, just like my previous Laurel I made in the spring.

I opted to use a bias facing for the neckline instead of binding the neckline for this version (I was also being suuuuper lazy in making bias tape, too).  I followed Jen’s directions and they worked like a charm, I actually like the result much better than my first top.  I think I’ll be doing this in the future for my next Laurel, a plaid flannel.
