What are you most proud of? I was still figuring out my serger when I decided to make this dress so there is some unfortunate 'bumping' around the hip area, but this is easily disguised by a jacket or a busy belt. There are also some fit issues around the arms, but after wearing it a few times, I've decided I rather like the loose fit in the shoulder area from the back. I'm tempted to try this pattern again in a top once I've fixed some of the fit issues on the pattern.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is a great beginner project that can be made very quickly.

I've been wanting to make myself some simple knit dresses, to replace the ones I've worn to pieces. I think I've found what I was looking for, thank you! You did a really nice job, and it looks great on you :)
