While you wait for the ferry or as you stroll along the waterfront, you will want this long tunic vest for its colour and zest.

The Indian Cross Stitch is the decorative motif, as it makes the most of a handpainted yarn paired with a coordinating solid colour.  A deep back vent as well as side vents give ease of movement and flair. Choose the colours which please you the most.
