Oda’s Dress


Oda’s dress is a timeless and yet feminine dress in ribbing. It is tight-fitting and emphasizes the curves. Without being TOO close-fitting.

Oda’s dress is worked top down with increases on the shoulders. While knitting the increases, the neckline is formed with short rows. The neck, wrists and lower body is knitted on 5mm needles. The rest of the dress is knitted on 6mm needles. For the dress the methods tubular cast on and bind off are used, to ensure a beautiful finish as well as preserving the functionality.

The bust circumference is stated in two measurements. The first measurement is when the rib is pulled together and the second is when the rib is fully stretched. To find the right size measure your bust circumference and choose a size that fits you best. I recommend a positive ease on approximately 8-12 cm larger than the smallest of the stated measurement. E.g. if your bust circumference is 88cm you should choose size S.

I recommend to try on the dress along the way and adjust the length if necessary
