Pattern description from Vogue Knitting, Spring/Summer 2007: “A slinky stunner by Fayla Reiss leaves other sundresses in its wake. It’s knit in three sections - halter, skirt and sash (the last, worked horizontally and crocheted around, anchors the other two pieces). Fiber shifts are built right into fiber colors of Trendsetter Yarns’ ‘Brighton,’ so the sections of stockinette and seed stitch stripe themselves.”

“Close-fitting halter neck tie dress with snap-fastened seed stitch waistband and in ankle length. Sized for Small, Medium, Large. Shown in size Small on page 83.”
