Inspired by a vintage thread crochet doily, the motifs of the yoke on this seamless, stretchy crochet tunic circle the shoulders and draw the eye to your face while providing a framework for the lace mesh body that floats to tunic length. The deep, gently ruffled trim creates a roomy, flared fit around the hip and gives the hem the weight it needs to sway with your every step.
