There are 13 favorable reviews here of Loes Hinse's easy New York dress. You can put in darts or not.

Are you looking for casual or dressy?
M 6744 and V 8822 are on my summer lists.
S 1693 is for wovens, but I have elminated darts and it worked fine for a longer top.
Free patterns mentioned here like the Scoop T could be morphed with an A-line skirt from another pattern into a casual T-shirt knee-length dress.

Burda 6910

The midsection is ruched, but lots of people have been making the top and loving it.

I have the stretch and sew patterns from the '70's, and 80's. They have no darts and depending on your shape, they fit great.
By shape, I mean sometimes a dart can make a huge difference, but if you are average through the bust these patterns are great, and basic enough to be used as a block. (I hope that is the right word) to create your own design ideas.
If you wish more info or pictures, private message me.

Stretch and Sew patterns are great. For years, they were our best shot at sewing something with a RTW fit. Styles are a bit snugger than they used to be, and there are a lot of knits with more stretch than the patterns call for, but with S&S, it's very easy to drop down a size and still get an excellent fit.

How about Maria Denmark Audrey Knit Dress? This is a digital download pattern that has had good reviews. I just recently downloaded this but haven't made it up yet.
