This is the same Katarina pattern that has flattered hundreds of bodies, but this version is nearly seamless. The fronts and back are knitted together from the bottom up to the armholes then set aside. The sleeves are also knitted up to the armholes, then everything is joined, and the set-in sleeves are worked seamless up to the English Tailored shoulders. There are small seams to join the top of the fronts and sleeves to the shoulders.
