A proper Austen heroine might not have flaunted her chemise in
public, but this top is just modest enough for the modern woman. Inspired by a Regency-era undergarment, this tee is worked seamlessly from the bottom up with alternating panels of stockinette and reverse stockinette stitch for a clean silhouette.
