"Beautiful addition to my wardrobe"

I love this knit tunic, Red Dreamcatcher. I can wear a short or long sleeve shirt underneath depending on the weather. I like to wear it with leggings. I have washed it a couple of times, and hang it on a railing to dry, not a hanger. It holds its shape very well. I am very pleased with my purchase. Thank you Nestor Yana for making this beautiful piece of clothing!
