Description
The sweater dress has been an increasing fashion trend over the past few years. In this design, Alexis hit upon the brilliant idea to use stripes to create an optical illusion: narrow bands around the bodice transition gradually to thicker stripes. The illusion offsets a wider bottom and is flattering for all silhouettes.
