I'm fairly happy with how this turned out. I still see tons of areas where I need improvement when sewing with knits, but the only way to get better is to keep going, so I refuse to be discouraged. I need to work more on not having wavy hems and not letting my fabric stretch a little bit as I go! I think my next move will be buying a double needle and seeing if that helps my hems, if anyone has any more advice on things to try please share!
The cub has decided this dress is comfortable, and she's happy with it. Jeff thinks the sleeves give it a bit of an 80s vibe - not a bad thing, right? Now I need to get my dress on and we can go out and paint the town green!
