Emerson is an engineered knit design. The garment was constructed using the full garment Mach 2XS Knitting machine and Shima Seiki knit design software. Emerson is designed for a high school female values trend and comfort. The design of the garment focuses on knit structures that optimize comfort and fit. The piece also was knit from 100% cotton 20/2's yarn, which provides additional comfort from cotton's natural properties. After construction, the dress was then digitally printed with a gradient to compliment the shape of the knit structures on the garment.
