Polar Leopard Part Deux

This is the second lovely, obnoxious graphic polar leopard stretch woven cotton dress I have made!
I mentioned in the post about the polar leopard dress predecessor (here) that I had intentions to make other color blocked dresses and I did.
For this dress I used Butterick 5673 (OOP), Using two print variations of the cotton to create the color block. The white background print was the center front and back panel and the black background print was utilized as the side panels, waistband and sleeves.
The pattern calls for Moderate Stretch Knits Only, I elected to ignore this. I also chose to fully line my dress.  Typically making this choices I would have moved my zip to the center back as the zip was patterned as an under arm placket and the center back pieces are cut on the fold. I however did not want to loose the CB fold which in turn caused the dress to be a little bit hard to get out of , I will manage.
