Prompted by a styling request from Juliet, Martha is a slim-fitting, shaped sweater with three-quarter sleeves and placket closures on each shoulder and sleeve cuff. Its deep round neckline is trimmed in white ribbing, and enhanced by the sparkle of shoulder buttons. Pieces are knit flat, bottom up, with seaming.
