Summertime…and you’ll be livin’ easy in this refined bamboo tee. A little bit more polished than your old t-shirts, but just as soft and comfortable. Knit in the round with the sleeves picked up from the armscye and knit down, this tee is totally seamless and packed with details: waist and bust shaping with darts, a curved hem, little capped sleeves, and for the front bib, I’ve put in a knit version of pintucks, one of my favorite tailoring details. If pintucks aren’t your thing, you can substitute another pattern. A simple garter stitch here would give just enough interest without being fussy. A bit of lace would make this fancier. You could also leave off the buttons for a simpler split neck tee. Or, for a bit more refinement, knit a placket with buttonholes.
