Very on-trend this 'cool shoulder' throw over dress/tunic is a must-have this season. Can be dressed up or down for day time romps or night time shenanigans! The zig zag sections are worked first from side-seam to side seam. Then joined on the side and joined on the points of 4 triangles. Pick up and work the lacy border; collar, sleeves and hem to give a very feminine and delicate accent to the design.
