A vindauga is ran Old Norse word, meaning “wind’s eye” (vindr wind + auga eye), referring to the ability to see things coming from the outside of your home, while still remaining sheltered inside. Middle English later borrowed from this term, and it became the noun we know today as “window.”

Windows are an essential part of any comfortable home; they allow us to watch our wildlife, follow the weather, and let the light in. This tee is knit seamlessly from the top-down, and follows simple raglan shaping. Follow charts for beginner friendly lace borders on the hem and sleeve edges allow you to let the light in, whenever you wear it.

Sizing available to fit up to a 30”- 63” bust with approx. 0-2” of positive ease.
Intended to fit the bust, and fit loosely at the waist, but feel free to experiment with more or less ease!
Sample photos include models with similar measurements, wearing different sizes and lengths.
