New York, New Yo...






The Turtleneck Dress is the winning design of last years contest. We liked the versatility of this design and the fact that Malissa Long based it on the concept of developing a generic sweater design with turtleneck further. Our creation is made out of a fine rib knit. On the collar we attached a pattern of sequin in a matching color. For this particular dress size 34 was used.

    I made this dress, it looks lovely – only a thing was that I had to reshape the neck… Has anybody found that sideway size was too small? I used quite stretchy jersey and I had to make it about 1.5 times longer….

    Malissa is much more versatile than you think. I made a (partly) homeknitted version of Malissa this winter! There is a bug in the system, so I cannot upload my finished project with the tag ‘I used a Burdastyle pattern for this’, but you can find it in my studio as ‘Malissa in Icelandic wool’.

    I’m going to make a cosy dress with stretch chenille, and knittet collar and armendings, and a applicated hart on the chest. I think that will be the perfect dress form the holidays

    Ooh! I really like this dress! I can’t wait to go home for winter break and make my own version of it! :)

    What brandi and rainbow said is correct, nevertheless it doesn’t answer the question stella asked. My answer is: i think the dress won’t suit you. If you make it too big it will look like a “sac”. Over sized clothes suit small frames better. I think you should go for something more form fitting like the ones with shaping for the waist and under the breasts.

    I am a size 36/38 and every time i went for this sort of model it looked terrible even though i have an ok figure: it made me look fat.

    Nevertheless, this looks pretty comfortable…so I’m pondering too…

    Wow! I can see it will be very difficult to keep the brown knit I picked up last week for its intended purpose. Great design!

    I second solas : I’m size 42-44 and I can’t tell, by the pictures, if that dress shape will suit me or not. Can’t there be sometimes models that are others size than 34-36?

    Love the dress, lots of possibilities there. I like the yoke part most. For model in size 34, I think that is normal too. They usually own A cup, I think, bigger than that have to model for Victoria Secret. I’m also size 34-36 depend.

    Hmm, now I’m really in doubt. I have some jersey lying around which I wanted to use for a cowl neck dress based on the Lydia pattern, but this one is looking quite tempting as well. I’d make it a bit shorter though, I think that would be more flattering. Anyway, it’s great to see the contest winner as a real pattern!
