So this dress is finally finished! It's a nice fit and definitely summertime cool and comfortable. I used a ladderstitch to attach the front binding, but a plain old zigzag set at 3.0 for the rest of the bindings. A 3-step zigzag made a nice hem, and the side seams are serged. The style is definitely contrary to the dresses I usually make, but I like this and I will probably make more.
