You can see in the photo where the dress is laid flat, that the top part is quite long. The sash is a double width of fabric, doubled into a wide tube, wrapped around twice and tied. It covers the join totally. The dress is wearable without the sash, and may get worn that way when it's really, really hot out.
I knew I wanted something different for the binding on the neckline and sleeves and that's when I went looking and found the printed knit and decided a skirt would be really nice. You can see a closeup of the binding (I used my favorite No Fail Binding method) and the twin-needle hem.
