Dressed up in Love

Dress yourself up in love with this super cute and stylish bow back tunic!  Featuring an optional large sweet heart stitch pattern on the front and a flirty and flattering keyhole back finished with a large girly bow, what is not to love?  This pattern uses the super soft Naturally Caron Country, and features lots of options to customize your tunic to suit your unique preferences.  The design has a hint of negative ease and waist shaping to flatter your figure, and features a wide deep scoop neck to show off your decolletage while also giving you the option of fashionably wearing it off the shoulder.  Enjoy!
