A seamless top-down tunic with a Celtic Cable yoke.
Celtic Hill is a tunic featuring an elegant “Sabrina” neckline, which is a type of Boat neckline that curves slightly lower.
The clever shaping in this design, along with a pinch of negative ease, enhances the womanly curves but still remain comfortable.
Easily modified to be a dress or pullover.
