This pretty little top is appropriate for any warm weather occasion. The coolness and sensual drape of the bamboo blend yarn make it a wardrobe “must-have”.

The tunic tee is knitted directionally with the bodice yoke worked from the bottom up. The lower lace portions are then picked up and worked in a downward direction.

The short row shaping in the bodice offers pretty gathering (a fine fit for curvy girls) and hidden interior elastic keeps everything snug and in place.

I know that some knitters are averse to sewing seams, but they are included in this design to help prevent the lengthwise stretch that is characteristic with bamboo fiber.
