For years I've bought camis from Forever 21--they're cheap, made from natural fibers and well fitting. Well-fitting except for my recent fitting realization that I am petite and need to have things shortened in the armscye area, so CF is always too low. In the winter, I don't fret because my tops are covering up any kind of ill fitting layering tee anyhow, but this time of year, it's kind of problematic. I reckon I could wear a t-shirt bra as an alternative, but I hate that you magically become whatever size those absurd cups are. I wore Le Mystere for years and then realized I was adding like 3 cup sizes to my small frame with those dumb cups.

I can shorten the straps a little to make a quick fix, but I got to thinking that it might be nice to have some camis made from some lighter weight fabric to start with.

Does anyone know where you can get really lightweight jersey in some sort of natural fiber?

The best project you could be working on is the one that's on the table right now.
