“Villains!” I shrieked, “dissemble no more! I admit the deed! --tear up the planks! here, here! --It is the beating of his hideous heart!” -Poe

This is the Valentine’s Day look you’ve been waiting for. Gone are the days of saccharine sweet gingham dresses with tiny glittering hearts. You’re not waiting around for someone else to bring you mediocre chocolate. You are a fierce, independent woman who buys her own chocolate (and the good stuff too) whenever she damn well pleases, and you are way beyond wearing your heart on your sleeve. No madam, you wear your heart on your yoke, and you wear it awfully well. This is the Valentine look for all of us ladies that know if our partners need Hallmark to tell them today is the day to make a romantic gesture, it’s time to find a new partner, but that that’s no reason not to have a little fun, dress up, and enjoy the holiday. Live your best life, with or without a Valentine.

NOTES
This tee is written with lower armholes than most, to give a fit more like a traditional unisex tee. If you prefer a higher armhole, more like a traditional yoked sweater, split for the sleeves before working the final chart.
