The nostalgia of the polka dot

Do polka dots make you smile? 
Do you have a section of your stash devoted to polka dot fabrics? 
If you do, consider adding our Dot Essentials--tiny pindots--to your collection! 
We have 20 different colors to choose from:

Did you know:

  • Miss America was first photographed in a polka dot swim suit in 1926, and then Minnie Mouse appeared wearing polka dots in 1928? 
  • Brian Hyland’s hit song, “Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini” brought polka dots to the forefront again in 1960?
  • The name polka dot may have its roots in the polka? 
  • Marvel Comics introduced Polka Dot Man in 1962? 

Learn more about fun facts about polka dots by reading this interesting article on Hairpin by Chloe Pantazi.
