This looks great! I like the topstitching. It adds a nice cross-texture to the knit.

A smart dress. Top-stitching the pleats was a good idea as it looks good and no doubt they sit better than they otherwise would.

Simple, elegant, gorgeous. The topstitching really makes it unique!

Gorgeous dress! I love the topstitching. What weight is the fabric, and what is the fiber content?

You do beautiful work. Your dress is so much nicer than the pattern illustration. I like what you did with the pleats.

Beautiful dress. Good idea to topstitch the pleats.

Thank you all so much! :] The fabric has some weight to it...not tissue thin like many rib knits. It stretches a lot vertically and only slightly horizontally. I bought it some time ago so I am not sure of the fiber content...poly cotton maybe?

Your dress is beautiful! I agree with the others; the top-stitching looks great.

I have found the same problem with pleats at the neckline in other patterns. I did the same thing.
