Note: Because of the silk content, medium and darker colorways may bleed into the lighter colored stripes. Be sure to swatch with both colors together to make sure before you begin. If in doubt, please use a relatively light color for the Main Color and a white or cream for the Contrast Color.
Important yarn note: If you use a substitution, please keep in mind that the recommended yarn grows significantly with blocking – the garment was designed with this in mind. The fabric should be light and loose, which will further encourage the garment to relax and grow with blocking. Yarn substitutions may affect final results and fit, so please look for a similar fiber content if you use a substitution (and/or add length to your body if using a different kind of yarn).

Swatching and Size Note
This sheath tee is meant to be worn with approximately 12 in/30 cm positive ease for a light, loose fit with tremendous drape. Sizes are flexible, so you may adjust how much ease you have in the finished garment by comparing your full bust measurement to the finished bust measurement in the schematic.
