The colors, buttons, and tailored shape give this delightful-to-wear design a slightly vintage appeal. Although it has classic knit shaping, using the tuck stitch texture makes it new and interesting. This versatile design can be worn as either a dress or a jacket. If you’d like, the bows can be omitted and the waist belted. As you can see, this piece has a lot of stockinette stitch along with the entertaining tucks, and though not difficult, it is a time-consuming piece.
