Thanks for the advice on the bodice fit. I was planning on a doubleknit and will recheck the ease. Very pretty dress.

Yes I did put the pleat in the sleeve, it looks better on than you would think, not too much.

Yay, so happy to see a review of this dress and yours is absolutely beautiful and looks fabulous on you!! Thank you for the tips. I agree that the big 4 are way behind the curve with their instructions. (Thank God for PR, right?) Hopefully the knit I have will be just right. Thanks for the tip on zero ease in the bust with this pattern. Did you put the pleat in the sleeve?

I love your dress! I agree completely about the ridiculous instructions in big 4 knit patterns. What are they thinking?

Oh, very nice! I just picked up this pattern but then wondered if it was too boxy - guess not, you great!

Added to the wishlist based on your great success. Thanks for the helpful hints. It is odd that so many pattern companies fail to give proper tips when sewing with knits.
