Pattern Fantastique - Glacial Tee
About the Glacial Tee / Skivvy
This is a classic base layer. It’s chic with a super high neckline, streamline shape, and a subtle shirt-tail hemline. The broader shoulder line and sculpted armhole gives this wardrobe essential a modern point of difference. It is designed with requirements of Merino Knits in mind, to maximise the Glacial's snuggly, thermal potential.
Due to working with Merino knits in the development of this pattern, the tightness has been adjusted on different areas of the body to create a neat fit around the armhole and shoulder without unnecessary cling throughout the lower arm or body. A pure cotton will produce a softer shape for an effortless look.
