Adding up a long list of subtle details, Kaplan makes the most of all of them. Worked in a combination of the softest merino and silk mohair, the hem and sleeve cuff alternate yarns to create a sheer stripe pattern. Gently flared cuffs, waist shaping, and a tailored collar create a modern and feminine silhouette. Kaplan is worked circularly from the hem/cuffs to underarms, then worked flat with minimal seams. The collar is picked up and sewn to the inside, creating a neatly finished garment.
