What's the advantage of a top down sweater?

Top down construction makes it easy to try on a sweater while the project is in progress, and make adjustments for shoulders, bust/chest, and length. Working the neck and shoulders before the rest of the body establishes the structure of the sweater. The sleeve length can easily be adjusted for proper fit, or to accommodate the amount of yarn you have to finish your project.
