Motif projects can make the most interesting lace fabric and combining it with unusual joining methods as done here the results can be one of a kind. The tunic is actually quite easy to wear being relaxed in fit you can customize it to your size by going up a hook size when you want a bit more ease or going down one when you don’t.
