Here are some views of the dress in progress before sewing the side seams together.

I found with this knit fabric that it stretches more lengthwise than the previous other two dresses I made, though similar to the second dress, This did require my making a few changes in the shoulder seams and the upper back seams both in the side back and center back seams.
I am pleased with the outcome. This may be my last dress from this pattern. I think three may be enough.
