Description

Changing Perspectives In this ready-to-wear design the idea was to use a Stoll ADF 7.2 gauge industrial knitting machine to create a design that was ready for production. The main challenges were to limit the use of seaming for shape as well as limiting the waste through creating a piece shaped on the machine. The dress is knitted sideways starting from center back and knitting all the way around the dress creating sleeves and armholes without seaming and using short rows in order to be able to add flare around the bottom and a closer fit around the sleeves and neckline. The design was programmed using the Stoll M1+ software and knitted in 14 gauge using overstock two overstock cotton yarns and one overstock polyamide yarn.
