Ruffled cuffs and a gathered tie-front neckline complement this lightweight cotton shirt. Hand-embroidered accents, adapted from 19th-century Indian woven shawls into a folk art style, decorate the front and sleeves.
Hand-embroidered in India. Cotton with rayon embroidery. Women’s sizes S (4-6), M (8-10), L (12-14), XL (16-18).
The embroidery was done on individual pieces before assembly, resulting in bunched and distorted patterns.
