Long, shaped garment that can be knit to your preferred length. Wear as a mini-dress, or as a tunic over shorts, pants, or a skirt. Contrasting side panels and waistline stripe make waist appear smaller and trace your silhouette. Very short capped sleeves, blocks of color, and wide, gently squared neckline make this top a knockout.
