Tour-the-Estate Paisley Slipover was knitted from the bottom of the back, up and over the shoulders to the bottom of the front. The armholes were picked up to knit the sleeves from top to bottom. The method minimized seams and allowed easy alteration of the length of the body and sleeves. However, the stitches in colorwork patterns are V-shaped when knitted from bottom to top but tent-shaped when viewed upside down as they would appear on the front of the one-piece garment. The narrow knitted tie is an attached accessory.
