The construction is top-down and totally seamless so you can try it on and get the exact fit and length you desire. There’s plenty of structure built into the design so that it will keep its shape after lots of wear. The sleeve cuffs and hem are finished with a nearly invisible bind off for lots of movement. The front band is smooth and provides a professional finish that holds its shape and doesn’t stretch out. The pattern includes a video tutorial recorded for the front band.
