This tunic features eyelet lace side panels and a flattering neckline with a front seam that both draws the eye and provides structure for the sensual drape. Note how the tunic is knit with the stitches running perpendicular to the length of the body – this is a subtle-seeming difference that adds great interest.

The tunic is meant to fit with between 2 and 5 inches of positive ease. It’s knit in one piece from side to side, so the only finishing required is seaming the shoulders and the underarms.
