I just had to try the Anthropologie dress again in a blue/black stripe from my stash.
1: I've overlocked the edged and added some differential feed for the waviness where the sections meet. That way you can see the changes in stripes.
2: The neck edge and hems are zigzagged.
The fit is the same and from DH's look, it does fit well - and he was engrossed in watching sport at the time.
