The top is knit from the top down with raglan increases on the yoke, worked at first flat back and forth, before the work is connected in the middle of the front and knitted in the round. Increases are knitted along the neckline to create a pretty v-neck, as well as on the arms for a more roomy fit.
The body is knitted with decreases to create a fitted silhouette, before increases are worked to create the peplum skirt.
The peplum skirt is knitted using short rows on the back to ensure extra length.
Folded edges are knitted on both arms and on the body as the finishing.
