Dressapalooza - Dress 1 - Polka dots in Sunshine

This is my Polka dots in Sunshine dress for BN. 

So after moving to India things got even more hectic. In the midst of all fiasco with settling in a new place, I took a drafting lesson :-) Of all the things I could do in India, this is what I picked. Man, I am so happy I did. Now everything is so clear to me and I am like DUH! Not that I think just a couple of lessons is enough to learn everything about sewing or you'd become an expert seamstress right after the lesson. But I am so confident that next time you trace around those patterns you are gonna know why the heck they have it the way they do.

A few weeks from the lessons and some trials, I jumped in and  drafted this dress for BN to wear at a wedding reception on Saturday. 

I love the back so much. I had this idea about pleats in the back and I didn't want to do anything over the top, so I added like 2 inverted pleats in the back in yellow. 

I love the way it turned out. It inspired me to make another one. That story, another day.
