Inspired by a vintage thread crochet doily, the motifs of the yoke on this seamless, stretchy crochet tunic circle the shoulders and draw the eye to your face while providing a framework for the lace mesh body that floats to tunic length. The deep, gently ruffled trim creates a roomy, flared fit around the hip and gives the hem the weight it needs to sway with your every step.

I want to make this garment. 

Is the pattern in the Interweave Crochet Spring magazine of patterns?  If so... is this the only way to obtain/buy the Tango Tunic pattern?

Help!!!  Raylee

The bottom of this dress is just delightful! I'd love to add that bit to the bottom of a lovely shawl....
