Sydney is a great example of all-season sweater dressing. Worked in one piece from the bottom up on circular needles, you jump right in with a relatively simple diamond lace stitch before switching to Stockinette. The dress is shaped at the sides for a better fit then worked to the armholes where you'll divide for front and back. The front is treated with a V-neck while the back has a modestly high scoop-neck making the dress reversible depending on the occasion.
