Contrast Tie Tunic


We all love that simple piece in our wardrobes that can be worn across seasons, that’s simple and classic yet has a bit of funk. This easy to wear knit fabric tunic sits with a lovely swing at the mid thigh and is a great layering piece, whatever the weather.

The tie portion makes this the perfect top for wee ones, and may be made from any fabric of your choosing: knit or woven. It can be cut with or against the grain, you choose! It is unhemmed, making the most of the simplicity of knit fabrics.
