RoseOK - no gaping in the armholes for me. I would watch the bindings a little if you are using something with a lot of stretch recovery (>=50%) and make them just a tad shorter but this is standard to adjust binding length based on stretch of fabric. Mine was 40-50% stretch so I probably could have shortened the bindings a tad and stretched them more when putting on, but I don't have gaping with them as I wear it, but they do "stand out" a little rather than pulling into the body so I believe shortening the binding would have resolved this (or cutting them on the bias).

Thanks for the reminders on the seam allowances. Did you have gapping on the armholes?

The very simple style of the pattern matches prerfectly with the impressive big print! You picked the right pattern for the right fabric, or vice versa:)

This is such a great review-you included so many helpful details and hints. Thanks so much. Your dress is super cute, and it has inspired me to get all my knit shift patterns out and make a few summer dresses. Really pretty.
