I really like the look of this dress: Butterick 5416
But, it seems a little fussy with the princess seams and the lining. Does anyone know of a pattern like this (where the knot is low, not the twist-front dress), preferably for knits, without the princess seams? Thank you!

Your pattern does not have princess seams.
What about this one?

You are right! I looked at the drawing and saw what looks like a princess seam on the right, but I guess that element is necessary to go into the knot.
I like the dress you showed me, although I would prefer a side knot.
Thank you!

Ooh, that Butterick pattern you mentioned is on my 'to sew' list.

How about Butterick 5675 for a similar look in a knit?

Yes, that's perfect!
Also, I find it really cool that you are in New Zealand and I'm here in Michigan in the US; Patternreview really brings sewists together!
Many thanks!

There is dress in December Burda that looks like what you are looking for. Take a look at the thread right here on PR in patterns and notions on the message board.

You're right! It's so rare that I look for something that actually is currently in style! Thank you
