Small patterns work well with petite figures

polkadotdressAt 5’1″ I have to be careful about the patterns that I wear so I don’t get swallowed up.  Here’s an any-occasion dress I purchased last year.  It’s navy with white polka dots, v neck in front and back, 3/4 length sleeves, and has a gathered underbust with inset waistband.  The knee length works well not only on petities, but on most figure types.  The dress is Clara S. brand, 70% polyester, 20% rayon, 10% spandex, and I got it from The Difference.

I’d love to share ideas from other women about how they decide what they like to wear, how it works for them, etc.  Please share your pictures and advice here and I’ll post it on this site!

  1. Love your polka dot dress! Looks great on you!

    • Thanks, gracefully 50! I’ve lost about 10 pounds since this photo, and the dress still fits! Thank goodness for stretchy fabric and good styling. I also just saw in the Nordstrom email I get, that navy with white polka dots continues to be ‘in’ this spring, so this dress was a good fashion purchase.
