  • CONSTRUCTION

    Worked from the bottom up the body features darted waist shaping that hits a little higher than the natural waistline, which I find is more flattering to the majority of women. Three quarter length sleeves are simply a personal favourite, but could easily be lengthened if you don’t find yourself constantly pushing sleeves out of the way, as I do. Sleeves and body are joined and the yoke is worked seamlessly, with a pattern of decreases that creates something between a saddle shoulder and a classic raglan: a ‘raddle’ yoke, if you will. This yoke style follows the contours of the body more closely than a raglan, defining the shoulders in a way that those of you who dislike raglans are likely to find much more flattering. Following the varying decrease rates requires just a little more focus than a classic raglan but the advantages are worth the effort. Not only providing a more refined shape, this construction means that the yoke depth corresponds to the body, rather than being dictated by the construction method.
