I used the maxi dress pattern by Ralph Pink. The pattern is very beautifully drafted: bust darts and four back darts for the shaping, the maxi skirt with the slit in front and the intriguing cut out on the back.
I had some troubles sewing this fabric, especially stitching the cutout and the neckline.The latter has stretched a little bit even though I used the walking foot and tried to be very careful with not pull the fabric. But I will continue sewing with knits to improve my techniques!
