I actually finished dress almost two weeks ago and have been wearing it almost everyday since then. It is made of jersey and extremely comfortable in spite of the dressy look. It is basically a long tank top!
The pattern is Vogue 1351 that calls for bias front bodice and skirt, but my jersey fabric has this delightful fruits print that goes in one direction. Since the fabric is stretchy, I didn’t cut on bias and omitted the zipper. I cut size 6 and didn’t make too many alteration except for shortening the bodice and skirt. The dress is not too fitted around the waist so it is quite comfortable.
