The Chasing Diamonds Tunic

This top features a beautiful diamond pattern running up the front and back. So you look beautiful at all angles. With the open, lacy design you can change up the look simply by wearing a different coloured camisole underneath. The model (moi) has a 38” bust and is wearing a size large. So if you prefer a more fitted look, you can simply go down a size. This pattern can also be made shorter (for petite ladies) or longer to make a dress!
