Is there a good way to knit a modified drop sleeve sweater from the top down, rather then from the bottom?

I want to knit a sweater that has a ribbon tie just below the bust line but I'm worried that it will end up to high and go right across the bust line or right above.  Not bad looks but not what I'm going for.

I haven't done it but there are instructions for many different styles of top-down sweaters in Barbara Walker's Knitting From The Top. Maybe your local library has a copy you can borrow before comitting to purchasing a copy.

There is. Provisional cast on the with of back, right below the armholeshaping. Do your armholeshapingdecreases (and neckshaping) as usual. Attach one extra bal for left (or right side front). Work frontneckshaping. Depending on kind of frontneckshaping join two frontpieces. Continue arhmholeshaping (this time add stitches instead of decrease). Afther armholeshaping join the front and back and continue working in the round.

I hope this all makes sense!
Goodluck!
