Inspired by the ethnic flavor of India’s flamboyantly colorful clothing, rich vibrant colors and embroidery find their way into this sleeveless top. The bodice features princess shaping lines that are defined by raised slipped stitches. The gently flared peplum ends in undulating folds, thanks to a fluid bamboo tape yarn. Chain-stitch crochet and embroidery embellishments (French knots, daisy, and fly stitches) highlight the low U-neckline shape and strengthen the artistry of the design. Be as bold as the color and try this top over leggings and heels for top-shelf class!
