    This is a lovely simple knit dress with a great shape – fitted at the top, then with a swing lower down. I really like the shape of it: I think it’s beautifully drafted.
    I made a straight size 10. I’d normally do an FBA, but based on the finished garment sizes, I decided not to, and I’m quite happy with the fit.
    The fabric is a lovely soft brushed French Terry, the loveliest thing against your skin – I feel like I’ve stolen it from a baby! I’m not sure I’d like it so much in a single jersey, as It’d be more clingy, but I will probably make more in double knit or sweatshirt fabric.
    It’d be a great project for a beginner, and it’s lovely to wear.
