The designer lets this tunic grow naturally out of a Japanese stitch pattern of leaves and flowers. After working the lower body from side to side, the upper body and sleeves are worked as one piece to the shoulders. A luxurious silk-and-seaweed blend highlights the openwork and gives the fabric depth.
