This t-shirt is a bottom up construction that begins with a flowing lace pattern before transitioning into a ribbon band and then into a stockinette bust. The waist is designed to have a more flowing lace section. Also, the cap sleeves are designed for extra breathing space and are completely short rows. You never join them in the round, which will help reduce any bunching and pinching under the arms.
I wanted to create a t-shirt that was feminine and light, that was able to be worn on warm summer evenings. The ribbon creates a more feminine touch that also helps to break up the sweater and create a waist line. However, since all women are different, the bust also has shaping information to tailor it to your size. There is an approximate bust length to knit, but to make sure the ribbon sits low enough below your bust, I recommend measuring yourself to tailor it just for you.
