I wanted Tangerine Trees to have simple, graceful lines, that fit the body perfectly. Dart shaping at the waist ensures a smooth fit and the lines are extended up into the neck to give almost a princess seam effect.
This garment is worked from the bottom-up, seamlessly, in the round. The underarms are grafted closed, though you could use a three needle bind off if you prefer.
