The front and back pieces are knit flat, then seamed.
The sleeves are the star of the show-by picking up and knitting stitches at the armhole edge, then increasing out in a circular fashion, sleeves are created with a beautiful, dramatic drape that will look appealing on any figure. Support structures on many temples, created in the form of female figures, used drapery to flatter and contour the body, giving off a hint of sexuality and fertility.
