My Christmas dress this year is COMFY! I used a rayon ponte double knit in Christmas red and Butterick B5523 to make a perfectly comfy and cute dress. A few reviews on PatternReview mentioned the bust was "snug." I did a FBA and almost went up a size due to the knit not being super stretchy. I came back down to my original size and whipped up the dress in 48 hours for a Christmas party. My only changes are the FBA and I used my coverstitch machine on the hems. A note for others about the pleats: it takes a firm fabric to hold the pleats, but the pleats are shallow and would hold a better pleat if they were deeper....
