Sweater Dress Black & Silver Upcycled Reconstructed Eco-Friendly "Pretty in Plus" Dress.
Wear for a Holiday Party or this one is appropriate for Church or dinner w/the family!
This is a black w/horizontal silver stripes, long sleeve, mock T-neck sweater that I added a midnight black knit net around the bottom. I put a piece of a white w/silver sparkle slightly to the right side of the bottom of the sweater, added some white/silver trim & added (3) vintage buttons. I added some of the knit to the Rt. sleeve, the trim & a vintage button to the Lt. sleeve. I made a pin from the white knit & put another vintage button in that, (it has a pin back), you can move that anyplace you want. I sewed (3) lengths of the trim together & you can tie/drape that where you choose, even in your hair!
On the inside, back, is printed, (NO tag), SW Studio Works Woman XL. Made in Switzerland.
There are washing instructions on a tag lower Lt. bottom of sweater - Machine wash cold, Only non-chlorine bleach (I washed in regular & did use regular bleach), tumble dry low, (I dried in the regular cycle in my dryer), warm iron, (Didn't need any ironing.) Made of 54% cotton 36% Polyester 6% nylon & 4% other fibers. I have both the black & white knits used listed in my sewing supply shop if you want any further info on them. The white w/silver trim is actually one of those speciality yarns.
I purchased the sweater at a consignment shop run by the Medical Center Auxiliary here in town. VERY nice place or I would NOT be shopping in there! I will always wash the items.

Dress should be very forgiving as long as you don't exceed the above measurements.
TIP: The bottom knit is slightly see through so I would wear black or off black stockings.
TIP: I always wear a silky (polyester) stretch type pantie under something like this because it eliminates "drag" & allows the garment to move freely w/o any "sticking".
Feel free to convo me w/any questions.
