What materials did you use? Stretch knit fabric

What are you most proud of? I found this fabric for $8 total - the catch? - there was only 1 1/2 yards and it had a big sticker stuck to it. I got the sticker off with some gentle rubbing with vegetable oil. The 1 1/2 yards made cutting the obvious diagonals of this dress very challenging. After some experimentation and a little pattern alteration, I found enough fabric to make this work - woot!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I've made this pattern a couple of times now and I think it's a great basic dress (although it's listed as a 'Special Occasion' pattern). I think this cowl top (View D) would be the most universally flattering of the view options.

Brilliant! It makes me want to break out my sewing machine again:)
