The South American Alstroemeria is a genus of brightly colored flowers known as the lily of the Incas. Popular in floral arrangements, the 120-some members of the Alstroemeria family have an interesting trait in that their leaves are upside-downthat is, they twist so that what we see as the top of the leaf is actually the leaf’s underside.
Artisans in Peru use the lily of the Incas as their inspiration for this breezy cotton tunic. Winding, hand-embroidered floral patterns adorn the front, back, sleeves, and hem. Flattering, feminine detailsincluding lace trim cuffs, a princess-style back, and ribbed cotton gussets along both sidesgive shape to the relaxed style. Gathered cotton lace details just below the bust create the illusion of empire styling.
Hand-embroidered in Peru. 100% cotton. Women’s sizes S (4-6), M (8-10), L (12-14), XL (16-18).
