The Amaranth Sweater Magenta is a soft sweater knit, not as bright purple as it appears on the picture. It is a very lovely dark color, suitable for anyone. The fit is not quite the same as our other dresses due to the different knit. It is a little lighter in weight, so the midriff sits higher than our other amaranth dresses. If you are between sizes, you may have to go with a larger size.
The Amaranth Sweater dress features a round neckline, a front bodice gathered onto a midriff sitting just above the waist, and short sleeves. The skirt is slim but not tight. The lengths range from approximately 51” for a small to 52” for the large sizes.
The fabric is a polyester sweater knit. It can be washed in cold water and hung to dry. Our favorite drying method is to hang the dress over a bar by the waist. It should not need ironing. PLEASE BE ADVISED: Some customers have been unhappy with this dress due to pilling. This seems to occur in places where there is some friction. However, there are also customers (even teenagers!) who have used these dresses a lot without a problem.
