This dress is worked seamlessly from the top down. The back and front are worked from the shoulder saddles to the armholes. After the underarm the body is knitted to the hemline in one piece. The sleeve sts are picked up and the sleeve cap is knitted with short-rows to allow the seed stitch pattern of the saddles to flow into the sleeve. Stripes & bolder colour are kept on the top to keep the focus near the face, enhance the shoulders and for a slimmer silhouette, while the pattern of the shoulder saddle adds some texture to the shoulders. The dress is shaped with darts for a three dimensional tailored result and the waist is kept slightly higher than usual. Different positive ease at the bust, the waist and the hips allow for a more flattering shape, that does not cling to the body.

I am quite taken by any combination of stripes and I love it when colour seems to give a whole new and unexpected shape to a project. And I like to think out of the box when creating a new design. It’s always so satisfying to explore new and easier/practical ways of construction… like solving a puzzle! I am also very interested in everything related to seamless construction, not really because I hate seaming so much... it is just that knitting becomes much more interesting when it gets three-dimensional! It's almost sculpting with yarn!!!
