Liz Says: Sweaters & Knitwear. Dressing To Impress has many various styles. You will be impressive in any of these. Knitted fabrics are generally somewhat elastic and have a softer hand (feel or drape) than woven fabric. Sweaters that are more tightly fitted or have a soft drape may conform well to the body without requiring tailoring necessary in a woven garment such as darts, flares, and gores.
