A cool shell for hot summer days! Or, wear it under a blazer or jacket! All-over bamboo stem texture gives a slimming vertical line. Armholes and neck are edged with a pretty and comfortable I-cord that is created as you knit the shell (not attached later). Side gussets provide shaping for hips and bust. One piece construction, knitted in the round, three needle bind off seams on the shoulders.

I like the Jeannee because it is a cotton acrylic mix, and holds its shape better than pure cotton. It feels lighter than pure cotton, too.
