This is a dress I made to gift to my Mother. I'm just taking it out for a test drive! lol.

I used the Butterick 5246 pattern. It's an A-line, pullover dress, that comes just below the knee and has a fitted bodice and tie ends.

I used a jersey knit fabric that I purchased at Fabric.com for only $4.78/yard. It's a polyester/Lycra blend.

More details on my blog.

That looks awesome.  Shocked I hope you will use that pattern to make one for yourself, too!
