The pattern came together easily. I tried not to get too hung up on pattern placement, choosing to try to keep things even and on grain, but not centered.
To maintain shaping without distorting the spots, I added to darts along the back.
I really like this dress. It's perfect for work, even though I haven't worn it yet. I'm still locked out of my sewing room, so am almost exclusively wearing knit garments while I don't have an iron.
Pattern: New Look 6145, used before = Free
Fabric: 1m double knit from Pitt Trading = $5
Thread from stash
Total: $5!! About time I made a truly cost effective garment!
