A bottom-up, seamless tank with centered decreases forming a slightly pointed hem in front and in back. The bodice is worked in half-linen stitch with I-cord edging around the armholes giving more structure to help minimize stretching. Choose the size closest to your high bust measurement (measured under the arms instead of at the fullest part of the bust). It is better to have a slight negative ease if you are between sizes. Modeled with slight negative ease at the high bust.
