Prima September 2019 Shift Dress

I made this simple shift dress for my friend B from the Prima September 2019 pattern.
(Prima is a UK women's magazine that includes a free sewing pattern for subscribers only).
I've used a remnant of stretch woven floral fabric. It was an absolute pleasure to sew. 
It has a 2" hem (hemmed with the blind hem stitch), armhole and neckline facings and a back neck opening with button and loop. I sewed a size 10 in the knee length with the boat neckline.
I was careful with the print placements, inspired by the far left example in the magazine.
The fabric absolutely makes it. There's a bit left over and I'm wondering if I could squeeze out something for me. A skirt would make the most sense.
