Here are my girls wearing their ruffle knit dresses with coordinating shrug in a jersey knit. I actually bought this pattern for View B, which is more of a tank top with ruffle knit skirt attached. However, once they saw View E, that's all they wanted.
There is only 1 pattern piece for the dress. As indicated in the pattern instructions, baste the ruffle knit down before sewing, which I did on all 3 sides. Otherwise, it might flip around on you. There is elastic around the neck opening. I didn't do the narrow hem at the armhole. I just turned it under once and sewed it down, which I found more than sufficient. When cutting out, I recommend not following the bottom of your pattern piece, but rather go to the next ruffle below and cut underneath on the lining fabric. If you cut the fabric right on the pattern line, you might cut off some of the "ruffle" area and you don't want to do that.
It's a great little dress to have when they need to be a little dressy for an outing.
Fabric purchased from Girl Charlee.
