Hi there, this is AMAZING, and I am absolutely inspired to make one for myself.
Want want want!!
I have never sewn with knits though and so have a few questions.

Are the neckline and wrist seams just a raw seam, or are they finished in some way?

For the armholes in the front of the dress: are those just slits that end up being hidden in the jersey fabric once it is gathered? Have you re-inforced them or made actual inside pockets in any way? I had envisaged concealing them inside a pleat of gathers so the slit was not very visible.

Is your bodice made of a front and a back, or a left and a right (if you look at the Lemuria website it looks like a left and a right joined at the front and centre back)?

Is the 15 cm band at the bottom doubled over?

Is the 150cm a measure for the whole way round, or for a front piece (i.e 3 meters in circumference).
Looking at the amount of fabric you have just mentioned I presume this is for the whole circumference.

Many thanks for the excellent inspiration!
