The Maia Tee is the result of dabbling in unusual garment construction methods. Diagonal, converging stripes and the bias construction of the body piece accentuate the body’s curves and lines and the sleeve-less mesh give the piece a flirtatious look. This unique tee will make for a fun summer wear!
