The only fabric patterns I usually like are striped or dotted, so I naturally adore seersucker fabric. I wanted to make a cute and comfortable sundress for spring and summer. And seeing that the Dream It, Draw It, Wear It Contest prize was a new Wacom tablet, I knew I had to come up with something! Please vote for the design it you like it. I really need that Wacom tablet!

*Edit: My lovely friend, who is much better at making patterns and sewing, helped me make a quick prototype dress. I included it in the main picture!
Thank you for voting these into the Dream It, Draw It, Wear It Contest Finals!

Step 1:

I am new to Sketchbook Pro, but it looked like a very useful program to work with, so I downloaded the free trial.

My first sketch started a little rough. I used the Pencil and Symmetry Y (Y key) to make each side even, but the lines were a little shaky, even using my old drawing tablet. I was drawing in Free mode, so I decided to turn on Steady Stroke mode instead.

I erased my first attempt with the Eraser tool. You can resize the brush size with the [ ] bracket keys.

With Steady Stroke on, my second drawing turned out a lot smoother, but it still needed a little refining.

By holding down the Shift key as I am drawing, I am able to make some of the necessary lines straight.  Now that I am happy with the shape, I can start on the fabric design.

Fun design! Would LOVE to see more about the prototype too.
I love everything nautical! <br>
Very cute.
Very adorable. I'd love a dress like this. Are you going to make a pattern of this, like your Portal pajamas?
I'm still a novice pattern maker, so it might take me awhile to get something put together.
Awesome! I love it.
