Just been hunting for ideas for what to do with some similar Missoni knitted fabric and found your fabulous dress! Wow, it looks amazing and is very similar to what I've been thinking of making with mine. May I ask a couple of questions...? How did you finish the raw edges (I don't have an overlocker, so I'm hoping zigzagging will work!). I'm not planning on lining it (I'll just wear a slip underneath) so how would you suggest finishing the neckline, sleeves, and hem, please? Would bias tape work do you think? Any technical feedback on working with this fabric would be gratefully received. Thanks :-)

Love your dress! What a perfect way to own a Missoni. It fits perfectly and suits you perfectly. Much better than a Target Missoni!

A custom-fit authentic Missoni dress - if that's not worth a 4-digit price tag, what is?!?

Amazing how a simple pattern teamed with a great fabric can result in a fantastic dress. Your stripe matching is perfect, and the colours are really flattering on you.

Very pretty and inspirational to see folks using designer yardage to get designer results without the $$$$ pricetag!
