My current favorite dress

I made this dress using Butterick 5382 and animal print ponte from Jo-Ann's. Here it is modeled by my dress form, Delphine: 

 The pattern was very clear and easy to follow. I omitted the back zipper because my fabric was stretchy enough.  One of my sisters liked the dress so much that she asked for one as a Christmas gift.  Her dress is in the same fabric but has long sleeves. I stitched the hems of the sleeves and skirt with a twin needle to allow them to stretch.
