About

A knitted dress designed by Bodymap. The designers Stevie Stuart and David Holah formed the company, which had a reputation during the 1980s for producing innovative layered clothing.

This dress is hand-knitted from black cotton, with ribbing at the top, skirt and cuffs for increased elasticity. The red knitted bands add colour to the dress. The ruffles appear spiralling down one arm, around the cuffs on the other, across the chest and in-between the red bands.
