The top is knitted from the bottom up, in the round dividing for the front and back after the colour work has been completed. The shoulders have a neat three needle cast off and the sleeves are knitted flat with cross stitch embroidery added after seaming. A simple gathered baby cord skirt is sewn to the bodice.
