Pattern description from No Sheep for You: “This simple, beautiful shell was inspired by the clean lines of a famous clothing designer named Eileen. I wonder if she knits? Because if she did, she’d certainly want to make one of these for herself: a streamlined linen top with an elegant ballet neck and the sexiest lace back a tank ever had. Designer Jillian Moreno loves linen because it shows off lace detailing beautifully and only need blocking for length. This piece is knitted much more tightly than the ball band suggests, and that’s on purpose. Otherwise, one’s usual feminine frontal undergarments (or lack thereof) would be on display to the whole world. We’d rather show ff the line, not what it’s covering.”
