This is truly an iconic piece of hand knitting! A large project with beautiful cables, textured panels and a stunning shape that really gives this dress an edge. The neckline is very flattering and the way it nips in at the waist give a proper hourglass silhouette. If you’re not feeling the “knitted dress on bare skin” thing, wear it layered with shirts or a fitted jumper underneath or with a cardigan over the top. Bring out your ‘inner Marilyn’ by making this wonderful Dress.
