Jeanmarie Dot Knit
Black and white polka dot light weight double knit has a lightly puckered surface and has an airy quality that is just right for summer. Stable, no rolling at the cut edge, so it will be easy to sew, no cling so it will be easy to wear too. The weight is right for many different garments: Tops, T-shirts, tunic, dress, skirt, even lightweight little pants.

Some pattern suggestions: A great basic T is Katherine Tilton's Vogue 8793 You could use the lovely collar with or without the zipper trim, or substitute a plain band or twisted cowl at the neckline.
or this new tunic:

Vogue 8881, or
Vogue 8636 is one of my favorite ‘go-to’ t-shirt knit top patterns. Quick and easy to make, I sometimes change the collar band, lowering the front neck edge and replacing the shaped neck band pattern pieces included in the pattern with a plain t-shirt band. I’ve even made this as a cardigan. Or an early and classic Marcy T-shirt has a flattering all in one sleeve and includes a good short sleeved T-shirt too. You can do the piecing as shown in the pattern or eliminate it to make things even simpler. VOGUE 8497. This fabric would also Be perfect for this super simple little knit T shift from Tom and Linda Platt (I’d lengthen the sleeve to elbow length). I just saw a version of this dress in an upscale boutique for $350: Vogue 1091
