Love this pleated tunic Review by Karen

This is a fabulous piece! I made it a bit longer so I can wear it more like a dress, with winter leggings (at age 64). I used 3 strands of lace-weight baby alpaca held together to make a tweed. It's an extraordinary shape and very swingy and fun to wear. I was a little worried about where the yoke would hit my bustline but it fits a little below the bust, as on the model, so it's very flattering. Make it -- it's irresistible.
