I wore my newly re-knit and revamped blue dress yesterday, and thought to take a few photos.
It appears that I have only about three standing poses, as yesterday's photos look almost identical to the first round.... only this time with a few minor improvements in the dress (and more hair on my head).
This time, the shoulders are seamless and the side seams are smoother. The gauge is slightly tighter.
I'm far happier with this result than the first, but there are still lessons to be learned with this yarn and this principle of no-brainer patternmaking for knitwear (it's a rectangle with a slit in the middle for a neckline). And I still have to work a bit on even tension (perhaps I should have washed that yarn before re-winding and knitting again...). But generally, I'm ok with it.
...so I ripped out the red dress to start that again, too...
