A one of a kind chemise, hand-knit and hand-sewn... light, airy, and perfect for spring and summer!

I started with 100% linen yarn in lovely cornflower blue. Plenty of stretch for the bust, and it ties in the back for even more adjustability. I try to design my clothing so that it fits a range of sizes, since my pieces tend to be one (or few) of a kind.

The straps are crocheted and criss-cross in the back.

The bottom of the shirt is a crisp white, and is open in the back. I used a light, summery cotton gauze fabric and sewed three chiffon strips to it - one down the middle and two on either side of the gather. The chiffon is a sweet floral that not only picks up the blue, but adds touches of soft lavender, peach and pink. I hand shredded, frayed and heat-sealed the chiffon myself, for an effortless, deconstructed look. More of the same fabric I used at the bustline, sewed on and tied into a girly bow.

Lastly, I hand-sewed a length of crisp white lace under the bustline.

Though the linen and the gauze can be machine washed, I recommend hand washing gently because of the chiffon.

Will best fit womens sizes 4-12. Will possibly fit slightly below or above that range. To give you a good idea of the fit:

mannequin pictured is standard size 8, 34 bust. Live model is about size 10 with 36 C bust.
Straps, from front to opposite side in the back (because of criss-cross) measure 21" (52cm) unstretched. Underbust, from side to side (along where the lace is sewn) measures 23" (57cm). Back ties measure 19 1/2" (50cm) each. Total length from top, center of the bust to bottom hem of shirt is 17 1/4" (44cm). If you are interested in more sizing information, feel free to Convo me. :)
