This just shows that a simple pattern can be the best, especially with the right fabric. Really nice!

Thank you for your description of your efforts to get a good back waist fit. I struggle with this too in knit garments that are otherwise well-fitting.

Don't you love this dress? I have made one and get so many compliments. How did you do the FBA? I'm curious because the front just has the one pattern piece with the center seam. Thanks.

Great dress! It looks awesome on you. Yes, I've found doing a swayback tuck was necessary with this dress to improve the back fit.
