Betty Draper Polkadot Hostess Dress

Based on the dress worn by ''Betty Draper'' on the show Mad Men, this satin polka-dot dress features a yellow and blue chiffon midriff, scoop neckline with gathers along the top edge of the neckline, narrow straps, full gathered skirt with a white chiffon over lay. I had the hardest time finding extra large dot fabric that was light weight enough for this style dress, see below what i ended up using. I did the white chiffon over layer because i thought the satin was a bit too loud for this dress and could end up too costumey if not toned down a bit, see below the fabric.
