This is a beautifully, hand-knitted dress in a pastel shade of turquoise with beige, brown and oatmeal. The pattern is randomly striped and the wool a very soft, thick yarn with a mohair style fluff - I can't say it is mohair but I'm no wool expert.
The shape has been cleverly tailored to fit with a side zip and front buttoning below the V neckline, four turquoise buttons fasten down. Inside, you will see the waistline and the zipper have been fitted with strengthening tape to ensure it doesn't stretch in the wrong places. The original zipper works perfectly.
If you look closely, you can make out a tramline vertically down the knit which adds the effect, almost of pleating in the skirt. It really is expertly done.
This has to be one of my favourite knitted finds as it's stood the test of time both in it's make up and it's stylish design.
