I removed 3/8″ at center front and back to account for the stretchiness of the knit. I can fit into this dress without a zipper, so I omitted that.
I wasn’t crazy about the way the back bodice distorts the sleeves, pulling them back. I sewed this dress in a woven last winter and it was a disaster. With the woven, it felt like the fit of the sleeve was cutting off my circulation. Thank goodness for forgiving knits! This dress is sooo comfy. If I use this pattern again, I’m going to try to fix the sleeve issue. Other people on patternreview.com complained of this problem.
