Thanks to you all for the sweet comments! It means a lot to me to get so much positive feedback as a self-taught seamstress! It really helps to get me to stick with it.
 @wewilltaketothesea : I used a normal machine and mostly zigzag stitch. I've got an ancient overlock machine w/o a manual sitting in a corner, waiting for me to learn how to use it though.
 @TeenageRebelOfTheWeek and @SewIn2Disney : I didn't use a pattern, but if you look in the post I actually detailed the steps that I took. It's honestly super simple!

I love the dress AND your snowflake tattoo. Cheesy

As someone with a name like Frost I always wanted a snowflake tattoo. Cheesy

I own an overlock machine, so knits and I are old friends. My total freak-out moment came when I scrolled thru the tute and discovered that the dress is nothing but rectangles! When I saw the first pic, I, too, thought you MUST have used a professional pattern. Now I want to know how you learned to make such delicious clothing without a pattern -- I've been sewing, quite literally, for 35 years, and I'm still afraid to just measure and cut.  This is TOTALLY AMAZING!!! I am ROCKing and BOOKMARKing this thread and I'm gonna get up the courage to make me one of these. LOADS of thanks for the tute!

I absolutely love this dress! It looks gorgeous and is very well-made. Thank you so much for the tute, too! I do have one question, though - about how many yards of fabric did you use? I'm no good at guessing yardage but would love to make this dress.

Usually I'm not a fan of this 3 piece style dress, but it looks great - maybe it's the knit.

On a completely different note, I live in Alabama where college football is emperor & if you added the Alabama University A to this somewhere there's about five hundred fans that would go, in the words of my DH, Ape-poopy.  (Legendary AL coach, Paul ''Bear" Bryant was known for wearing a houndstooth hat)  Football is kinda on my mind!

Seriously, I love seeing 5 basic shapes reformed into a snazzy, elegant outfit.
