A really simple body hugging knit dress with a neckline that drapes across the front and is held in place with three stitched down pleats at either side of the neckline. I kept the long sleeves even we are coming into summer here in Australia because I think they really suit the lines of the dress and I can always scrunch them up to my elbow on really hot days. The only change I made to the pattern was to include two vertical darts at the back to nip in the dress at my waist because I have a sway back and always end up with fabric pooling there.
