Rhonda, good question. You know I'm not sure... I actually think knits flow nicer and HIDE bellys and curves. The pattern says matte jersey and double knit as well-must have been where I got the idea for a knit-I don't remember.......:) Must have been luck that it didn't turn out huge..... because I sewed my usual size.

You are such a cutie, you know that?! This dress is so romantic, I love it.

Hi! The pattern suggests cotton... How will this dress flow then?? I'm scared, scared, scared of knits--sewing them & havin' them hug my belly...

I read the others comments afterwards and I am glad to know that adorable is acceptable for adults :-)

You have that beautiful smile that indicates satisfaction ! Your sewing project is a success you look lovely and adorable if that compliment applies to adults as well... (if not my apologies of French speaking woman). Lovely really. plus I think it should be a head turning type of dress on a windy summer day.

Very adorable dress. I like your idea of making it as a LBD.

I'm loving this Cindy! The print and style work just perfectly together. I'm really into interesting and fun sleeves and agree that the flounces are great! Fabulous!
