About the design a m p l e dress is an elegant dress that creates the feeling of a soft embrace with its simple and discreet increases at the shoulders and the half-high neck, while featuring feminine details and finesse. The band at the waist accentuates the figure and gives the dress its shape. The wide shoulders that extend over the arms give the a m p l e dress an oversized look at the same time.
Details such as the armholes, which are narrower at the bottom than at the top, the lacing with invisible cast-on and bind-off edges, as well as increases and decreases along the body, contribute to the aesthetic, feminine, comfortable and light oversized look.
A knitted everyday dress best suited for the cooler seasons. a m p l e dress is worked top down in stockinette stitch.
