Luminous Summer is a simple tee worked from the top down. It has minimalistic finishing with a row of eyelets delicately framing the face. It has a unique placement of short rows that shapes the neck without disrupting the neckline. This cropped tee uses very little yarn, making it the perfect project to indulge in exquisite yarns.

Luminous Summer is graded with inclusive sizing in mind, designed to fit actual bust sizes from 76 cm / 30 inches to 168 cm / 66 inches. Measurements are given in both cm and inches.
