In Canada we are blessed with at least seven months of winter. Cold, cold winter! As a kid I remember having to stuff my beautiful dresses into my snow suit every time I wanted to wear something pretty through those seven months. Inevitably my dresses would be crumpled and my spirits flattened when I pealed myself out of the snow suit. This top down tunic solves all cold weather dress-up problems! Easily worn under a snow suit, it is warm enough to not require layers, yet will still look darling when you get to that holiday party: perfect for any northern girl.
