I like the shape on this one and size 7 needles. Check the gauge. It's done in pieces and seamed. You could just not do waste shaping if you want less fitted, too.

Theres several here, too.

I'm a real fan of bamboo. It breathes so well.
Could you provide the name of said cotton/bamboo/linen blend? I love natural fiber, plant based yarns!

"Bamboucle" by Elsebeth Lavold ( 45% Cotton, 30% Bamboo, 17% Linen, 8% Nylon)

Another bamboo yarn I love is "Bonsai" by Berroco. ( 97% Bamboo, 3% Nylon)

It's odd how "cool" they are on the body....Bamboucle is aran, Bonsai is worsted.
