Underneath it All is a lightweight camisole that is ideal as a summer top, or as a pretty camisole for lounging around or sleeping in. Pair with a cardigan to extend wearing it into the fall and colder temperatures!
Construction Notes: Underneath it All is knit with a split hem from the bottom up, and in the round. Lace is both written and charted.
Finished Sizes: 32 (34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44.5, 48.5) inches bust circumference
Finished Length: 17 (17, 18, 18, 18.5, 19, 19, 20) inches
Note on sizing: Camisole fits snugly without waist or bust shaping. Front ties and straps are easily adjusted for a custom finished size. Choose a finished size that corresponds to your high bust (measured just below the underarms), sizing down for a closer fit. For more ease in the lower body, you could use a needle 1-2 sizes larger for the lace hems and lower body, changing to the smaller size about halfway up the body.

Similar yarn would be Tanis Fiber Arts Red Label. You can also experiment with plied merino sportweight yarns, or even a DK. As long as you are wet blocking your swatch to check your gauge, have fun experimenting!
