    Has anyone tried a back pleat on the gelato dress to add more room for underarms and back? I recently saw a tailor do this for Indian style tunics when they want to add more ease without altering the style lines?

    You could definitely do that. Do you have the Gallery Dress pattern? I imagine it working much like that. Cut the back with extra at the centre back fold line, then create a box pleat with a rectangle about 1&1/2″ deep at the neck line.
