I made this dress from Simplicity pattern 3503. It’s a really great pattern for knits, though I’d suggest going at least 2 sizes down. I went down one size from my normal one because I figured it’d stretch, and the waistband still doesn’t touch my body.
Anyway, I loved the details on the dress, and used a decorative-ish stitch for all of the edges. I was going to upgrade my sewing status from ‘novice’ to ‘intermediate’ about halfway through this dress, but then I made about 10 mistakes in a row and decided it’s too early to declare myself a better sewer just yet! maybe next time :)
