I am lost, confused, and now brain numb from reading here on PR and online looking for a simple pull on knit dress pattern that does not require a zipper, has a mock wrap top, sleeveless & sleeved versions preferred, to attach to a simple A-line skirt (probably elastic involved) ending around the knee area. Thanks

Most importantly, no gaposis please.

Sounds like the recently OOP Butterick 5001.

Well that happens. Oh, would like to have a mock wrap on skirt if possible.
like this dress by Ralph Lauren.

Is close to what you want. You may need a muslin to avoid gaposis depending on your body type. Or enclose some clear elastic in the neckline from shoulder to waist (only sew it at the shoulder seam) then pull on the elastice slightly to eliminate the gap before sewing the bodice to the skirt.
