The knit and crochet tops popular at music festivals of the ‘60s and ‘70s inspired this updated halter style top. The front and back are almost identical, except for one key detail—the gently sloping hems. With the use of short−rows, the angled garter ridges create striking visual lines that are both flattering and interesting on an otherwise plain fabric.
