This stunning slinky top will flatter your best moves spinning round the dance floor at the Yule Ball.

Vesperis is knit in the round from the bottom up with pretty lace- patterned side seams, then split for the armholes and worked flat.

Gathered tie shoulders and a graceful neckline give this top a touch of magic, whilst the potion bottle lace will have you casting love spells on whomever you meet.
