Kichwa, aka Quechua, is the ancient language of the Incas. Though it has changed across the centuries, several dialects of it are still spoken throughout Ecuador, Columbia and Peru. Original stranded patterns inspired by Andean designs give South American flair to the Kichwa Love Song Vest. Side shaping and a single front tie create a flattering silhouette that glides gracefully over your curves.

Photos show size medium. Patterns are provided in charted form only. Choose the size closest to your bust; the vest is designed to be worn with approx. 3-5” / 7-13 cm of positive ease.
