The classic little knit dress
A little black dress is a staple piece of a woman's wardrobe. Perfect for nearly every occasion and always in style, you can't go wrong with such a simple garment. Our version of a little black dress is truly a wardrobe must have, and even better, is a knit garment! Ida is a flattering, figure-hugging dress that hits just above your knee.
With such a simple pattern, the art is in the details. Ida has a boat-neck neckline, with shoulder gussets to keep the neckline in place and prevent it from stretching. Self-lined cap sleeves balance the slim silhouette, center back seams allow for easy fit adjustments, and a slit at the right side seam adds to functionality. Experiment with a textured knit for Ida, such as a matelassé or stretch velvet. Pair Ida with Lady Grey (Colette Patterns) and you have yourself one classy outfit.
