It turned out looking great despite the challenges. I really love your print fabric. Just a tip, (if you don't have stabilizer on hand), if I have a difficult knit, I will often use 'Steam a Seam II Lite' to fold up and press the hem in place. It gives the hem some oomph so the coverstitcher doesn't eat it up. I test it first on a scrap to make sure it doesnt change to hand of the fabric too much.

Glad you have such a lovely dress in the end. Chloe and team are wonderfully helpful and your new dress is lovely.

I like the neckline look and the ease of sewing on your dress. Will you try the pattern in a 1 way knit? It would be interesting t see how the fitting changes.
