Polka dots dress

This is the first dress I’ve made after being a year away from my sewing machine. The pattern is from issue 5/2011 of Burda Style magazine , dress pattern 128. I didn’t really make any changes to it except for shortening the pattern by 5cm as I am quite a shorty 5"2. It is a very simple dress to make and the fit was perfect, will definitely make a couple more in the future.
