Dress is cut out

First let me say, I love, love, love "scuba knit".  This was a great fabric to layout and cut. 

Because of the design on the fabric, it was important to me to make sure that I got the focal point I wanted of the design centered for the front and back.  I thus laid out the fabric as a single layer and cut one side of the front and back then flipped it over aligning with pin markings I made.  I think I held my breath through this part of the process.

Here is a view of the front of the dress
And the back view
I also cut the sleeves identical, did not take photos of those. 

I am ready to sew this up.  I had to add a dart to the front; I just could not figure out how to get around this.  More updates to follow.
