This colourwork dress is a vibrant take on Fair Isle traditions. Black fabric for the top and sleeves is paired with Fair Isle worked in bright pink, blue, green and yellow.
The top sections for the back and front are worked first, then stitches are picked up at the waist for the skirt sections, which are worked in a larger needle size.
A band of garter stitch around the waist highlights the garment’s shaping.
