Adjective of an adjective


The last week I was studying the correct order of the adjectives before a noun. But this morning I was writing an essay and I had a doubt. I wanted to explain that I have a red T-shirt with blue spots (I haven't got this T-shirt, it would be awful) and I wanted to say this thing using the few words possible. I have written a blue spotted red T-shirt, but I don't know if it's correct the way I have used, because I suppose that to say a spotted blue and red T-shirt is gramatically correct, but in this way the reader doesn't know that the spots are blue and the rest of the T-shirt is red. Could you help me and tell me the shortest form to say this?

    A blue-spotted red t-shirt sounds fine to me. Do you mean Polka dots here?
